Sorry to hear of the death of my friend “Doc”. I always enjoyed the talks we had while we were “neighbors” in East Liberty. May you find comfort in knowing that others held him in high esteem.

Becca, Nancy, Jayne, Shane, and Alexis –
Doc’s memorial service was beautiful. All of you thanked me for taking care of him but it was my pleasure. I hope you know how much I enjoyed spending time with him, and Ruth Ellen. I loved seeing them everyday and being there for them. Doc lit up when his children and grandchildren would come visit; he adored his family. He was a great man and I will miss him very much! He and Ruth Ellen will always have a special place in my heart. I pray that the many wonderful memories you have of your father will bring you comfort.
