I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine your heartbreak at losing such a special man. I have known Dr Depuy since 1987 as my dermatologic patient. We spent so very many visits over 32 years talking about boats, families, travel, fish, grand children, go carts, moving, scuba diving with grandsons, road trips with Great Aunt Claire, and lastly, deciding on making those baseball bats. That is just a bit of what I will never forget............ always first patient in the morning or close. Always smiling. Always trying so hard.
I will miss him, as we all will
