Through out my practice, I liked all my patients, but there were a few I truly loved. Temple was in the top tier of loved patients. A joyful gracious man who always brought happiness into the room. He represented to me the true Christian who walked the walk and talked the talk of Christ’s love. It was a privilege to treat him as a patient and to call him my friend. My thoughts and prayers to Maureen and his family. He will be greatly missed.

My family met Temple when we started attending AUMC. He always has smile and encouraging words for you. He had some much patience with our daughter who has autism and he made her feel important and loved, as he did with everyone. I loved listening to his stories of how things where when he was a young man. He will be missed. Sending love, hugs and prayers to his family.
