Gloria - My deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Dr. Goff when he was in the office with Dr. Creager. Dr. Goff was the most kindest and sweetest gentleman. Those years were some of my fondest years working. I loved seeing his photos from vacation and he loved sharing them. He always had a "smile". He will be greatly missed. Sandy

So sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. He was a true gentleman and a great physician. A perfect compliment to Dr. Constant in their practice.
It was my pleasure to have shared the table at lunch with him for many years. I still remember his airplane ventures and stories of “tail” draggers.
My condolences to Gloria and the family.
