Wendy and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Dr Scholl was so welcoming to me when I came to the Valley. He loved MVH and loved to share his stories. He was an amazing physician, a wonderful man, and such a loving friend to all of us at MVH. I’m so very glad that I was able to have a short visit with both of you recently. Love and blessings of comfort and peace to all of you. Bobbie

Wendy, I was so shock to open my newspaper and see the passing of my good friend Dr. Scholl. U know I love both of you and it was always a pleasure seeing the both of you as you enter the Main Entrance of Miami Valley Hospital and even after I left the Main entrance and transferred to Campus Police Department. I will always cherish our friendship and please know that he may be gone but he is not forgotten. Wendy and family I will keep you in my daily prayers. Love You. Gerald Martin and Family. (Gerald Martin retired from MVH in 2013 from the Campus Police Department).
