Memories Timeline


  1. Dear "Doctor D":

    I know we spoke so many times the past year about our plans to get our group together and have dinner with you at Legends Diner, but unfortunately you were not feeling up to it so we did not get to meet with you. It was wonderful spending time with you at Faith Link's wedding reception in 2019. So glad that me and my Mom got to hug you, talk, and hang out with you.

    Thank you for always being a great friend and mentor, especially during the many years I worked under your direction at MP Hospital. You taught me so much and it was always a day filled with laughter whenever working with you because you had a very unique sense of humor. Thank you for all the delicious pizza also.

    I feel so sad that you passed on, even though I know now that you are no longer in pain from the illness you battled.

    You were one seriously good-hearted (AND handsome!) man, and i was seriously blessed to know you and work with you and Carol Link in your office.

    Please watch over us always with your love and light.

    With sad heart,

    TARESA (T. T.)
