I am saddened to read of Dr Lavoice’s passing. He cared for my family and I for decades. He inspired me to pursue medicine as a career and I am indebted to him for his counsel and encouragement. He was a gentleman and a kind and thoughtful physician. His bedside manner was instructive to me. My sister and I extend our sympathies to his family.

We will especially miss you during holiday dinners. We all know how much you loved Thanksgiving and Christmas. You were always complementary of whatever I made for dinners.
I can picture you tapping your glass which meant please get me another scotch.
We all look forward to toasting you with a special scotch once Covid restrictions are lifted! RIP
