A Mother is someone who makes sacrifices for their children.  A Mother is someone who lends a helping hand to a child in need.  A Mother is someone who loves their children regardless of their size, shape, looks and the mistakes they've made.  A Mother is someone who is a child's best friend.  My Mother is all of these and much much more...which is why I love her so much.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your mother and my patient for many years. She and I had many good conversations over the years at the hospital and at the office. She always expressed her deep love for her family and great appreciation for their care.
With sympathy,
Dr. Peter Sheckman
