In 1972 Dr Waites showed me how my learning disability would become my own unique learning advantage. From a child who couldn't read to a college graduate who finished in the top 1% of his class...you presented me with a solution and showed me how to stand tall while remaining humble. You were love in action, thank you.
I did not personally know doctor Waites, but I have had the privelege of living with a man whom has thrived in his life as a direct result of the loving care and wisdom the doctor extended to him. My husband Matthew has always spoken so fondly of doctor Waites and so did his Mother, Lucy Phillips who as a result of having 3 dyslexic sons became a teacher to help other struggling youth. His amazing circle of love grows and expands everyday. Thank you for all your efforts dear man.
Thank you, God, for a wonderful man. Sleep sweet, you will be missed. Thank you for how you blessed so many lives with encouragement, strength and a twinkle in your eye.
Dr. Waites was a special man. He was a very kind person. He touched the lives of the children he helped as well as his staff.
This was a truly wonderful human being I was blessed to know for many years. Absolutely selfless, and as good as they come. One of my best memories was sitting in his living room, sharing a glass of special single malt Scotch. I knew I was in very rare air. He will never be forgotten for his kindnesses and his countless contributions to the world of medicine for children. Godspeed, Uncle Luke. A life well lived.
