I have been an amputee and on crutches most of my life and that does nasty things to the human body. The pain in my remaining leg was getting unbearable, and my phantom leg has always been out of control. At least 10 years ago (probably longer) Dr. Johnson suggested that I start seeing his partner Dr. Williams. Slowly over time Dr. Williams cured the extreme pain in my right leg. He also helped to keep the phantom pain at a bay. He rescued me and gave me my life back. During this time we would gossip and tell stories and he became a dear friend. I watched as he recovered from one set back after another. He told me about his family, about his wife who he loved dearly, his children, and his grandchildren. He was proud of all of them. He also told me about his dream with the angel. How he said he had too much to do to leave. I guess his angel finely said enough. You have suffered through enough. I will miss him. I am afraid covid will prevent me from paying proper respects but I want his family to know what he meant to his patients and his friends. Go with God Dr. Williams. Thank you.
