To Dr. Seal's family,

I am very saddened to read about your dad, for it is such great loss to your whole family. He loved you all so very much. My heart has always cherished him and I am deeply sorry he was taken home so suddenly.

Your husband Craig and your dad was truly one of my favorite people. He was my doctor and my daughter's doctor whom delivered three of my grandchildren. He was always on call and listened patiently even though he was very busy.

God Bless each of you I know he is with you in your hearts and watching over you. And you are all making him proud.
Janee Van Horn

P.S. I just happened to search to see if he was still practicing medicine.

Although I only knew him for a short time he changed my life and my daughters life forever. Gone but not forgotten.

Its hard to believe that its been over a year since we lost Dr. Seal. I had the pleasure of working with him, for a short time. But I also had the privilege of being one of his patients. My daughter will be turning 1 in a week. As her father and I look forward to celebrating her birthday, we also reflect on the journey it was for her to be here. Our daughter would not be here if it weren't for Dr. Seal. He unfortunately passed before he was able to deliver her, I was about 4 months pregnant when he passed. But seeing the joy in my daughters face every day reminds me of the blessing that was Dr. Seal. He took great care of me and my pregnancy health needs, he was so thoughtful, very thorough, and had a great sense of humor. I will forever be grateful for his presence and how he impacted my life. He is missed.

It is hard to believe it has been a year since the world lost such an amazing man and doctor. I think of him often. He gave me back my quality of life through his expert care. He always listened and always cared. He delivered all of my children. It was an absolute gift to have known him. I will forever be grateful for the difference he made in my life. He is deeply missed.

We will always love you and be grateful for the joy you helped us achieve. Thank you for saving our lives too. I can believe it’s been a year . I think of you often and know you’re watching over us all especially all the little ones . You’ve been there through so many dangerous times for me and even caught it when my gallbladder was going to break(yrs after the girls were born). You always were kind and loving and care for us as if we were your family and that makes you our family. We miss you and love you. Blessing to you loved ones always💖💖💖

Dr. Seal allowed me to complete my pregnancy with much comfort. Having a few health conditions and being in my 30's much fear came in when realizing I was to have a baby. Dr. Seal was indeed a kind, informative and caring doctor. I am very sadden to hear the news of Dr. Seal's passing. I thank him very much for helping me through my pregnancy to not only deliver a healthy baby girl, but that my health was also prioritized. Favorite memories of Dr. Seal: When he ordered my blood draws for testing, I had 14 vials to fill to check all areas of my health! Was funny to see all the bottles to be filled, but was great to know he wanted me thoroughly checked. Second, after I had Maddie, we ran into him at the store, a proud momma I showed him my baby, his smile was the greatest along with his words of encouragement for myself, my health and my baby. Thank you Dr. Seal, your passing greatly sadden our hearts <3

I was looking up Dr. Seal because my oldest son (13 yrs) was asking about him, he knows that I have always loved Dr Seal, he was an amazing Dr. When I looked him up I found this page and I am deeply saddened and heartbroken. He was our Dr from my mom to me and he delivered my siblings and my kids. If he did not know the answer to something he would find out and make sure he would find an answer. When I was 14 I had severe stomach pains and no one could figure out why. Dr Seal knew and treated it. When I got an IUD placed wrong (at another clinic I went to since Dr Seal was not accepting my insurance) I was having pains and I went back to Seal because I trusted him. He surgically removed it for free for me. He always had his patients best interest in mind, along with his "babies" He was the best Dr I have ever known and my heart is so heavy and saddened by his passing. I wish more drs were like Seal and cared about their patients instead of them being just a number. Dr Seal was one of a kind, a true hero and should be praised as such.
Dr Seal,
My family and I love you for what you have done for all of us and for all your selfless acts of love and kindness to others. If it wasn't for you then a lot of us would be worse off and all of us women owe our lives and the lives of our precious babies to you. RIP you deserve the best and there will forever be a hole in my heart ❤️
Your memory will live on through your family, your patients and through all of the thousands of babies you helped bring into this world. ❤️
attached is a picture of my oldest son that Dr seal delivered. I was so scared and didn't know what I was doing. I put full trust and faith in Dr. Seal and he was nothing but kind and loving to me and my baby.

I just found out about Dr. Seal's passing. I have been seeing him since 2003. I still remember the first time meeting him. He figured out what was wrong with my body and what we could do to fix the issue. The following year he saved my life! I would not be here today without this mans dedication and tenacity to saving me, someone he had only known for a year or so. I am so blessed to have had him in my life for 16 years. To his family ~ thank you for all your support as he dedicated his life to helping others. I will miss him dearly and always think of him on December 21st ~ The day I got my life back.
