I worked at Dr McCulloch’s office for 11 years until around 10 years ago and had the pleasure of taking care of Mrs Ellen and Mr Powell. Sweet sweet people. Some patients stick with you and he was one. He was always picking and making jokes. Never failed to make me smile. So sad to hear of his passing. My condolences to the family.
