What a good man he was . Every time I walked into his unit , his face would glow with irresistible smile , he would not let me walk away without him shaking my hand , he would introduce me to everyone “this is the doctor “ . When he had a bad day , he would sit down and listen to me very respectively . I will miss his smile and pure heart .
