It goes without saying, I think,that He and I had a wonderful friend/patient connection during our tim.. his sense of humor, hilarious obstinacy, our jabbing Longhorn/Aggie disputes,,challenging questions and thoughts, and his support of me. You both were one of the reasons that I had so much fun practicing medicine. I needed more like you and less of my crazies. I miss our visits friendship most of all. What was completely evident was his love and commitment and concern for you. Despite his occasional stubbornness with which we quite all too familiar, , his acceptance of his medical problems , his spiritual connection with Gd and peace of a life well lived was amazing. I pray for strength and love and comfort for you during this time and days ahead. Pick up the phone and call me anytime if you just want to chat or need a pep rally or tell me an Aggie joke.
