have a memory or condolence to add?


January 8, 2020

Ellen and family, I grieve your loss. I know how dear Sylvia was to you and you to her. I feel fortunate to have had a long telephone conversation with her recently. Since I closed my practice in Columbus, she and I have remained in touch reliving those great old times. I have many great memories of having had her as a nurse in my practice. I will dearly miss her as I know you will.
