I was very saddened to hear this news. My deepest sympathy to Dr. Cantor's family. I have very fond memories of being his patient since I was 19 years old. Almost 30 years ago he delivered my son Michael. I remembered him telling me how wonderful the name was as he spoke so highly of his own son Michael. I am so sorry. I will keep all of you in my prayers. He truly touched my life. Sincerely, Linda Minnella-the girl who danced through each pregnancy with all of my 4 boys. So happy that he was there for my second birth. 10/7/83
