I had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Mohs through the Spectator Investment Club. He was always interesting with his stories and jokes. Offering my deepest sympathy.

A "stacked details" list of memories of Dad [coming from his English teacher daughter]: Handsome man standing in our oldest family pics. The slight smile and professional look always. Black Cherry Shasta and picnics up in the mountains. Sunday afternoon catechism and rosary. Beautiful gardens. Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass blaring from the huge stereo console. His devotion to our education and providing us with many books. Manners and trivia at dinnertime. The love of his patients shown to him in the form of anise cookies and all manner of goodies. Christmas--long rides on Christmas Eve looking up in the sky for Santa's sleigh, when we were older, the allowed sips of wine, the fruit-filled bowls, midnight mass and picking out his voice in the choir at the cathedral in Boise. One memorable outing to see The Messiah. Many Easters in St. Louis with Mom and Dad in my adult years. A man who did so much for his profession and his community. Someone to be respected and remembered for all he did for many people. A full, rich life easing out in a timely manner to join the love of his life. Rest in peace, Dad. Love, Elizabeth
