Dr. Gall will always be a conversation piece in my family. He was the pediatrician to all six of my children. Just the other day I shared a story with my daughter (one she heard many times. Dr Gall stories never get old in my house.), of my experience with Dr Gall after the delivery of my last child. He came to the hospital that morning (as he did after the delivery of all my children) He had a concern look and he said, "Mother are you ok?" I was smiling because I was glad to see him and I told him. "I'm good Dr. Gall, anything wrong? He said, everything is fine, healthy baby boy, he just got a big head." I said, Dr. Gall why you talking about my baby head?" With a smile, he answered. "After caring for 5 of your children and this being 6, I think I'm entitled to." I looked at him and we just burst out in laughter.

Out of curiosity I decided to Google his name and I was sadden to read of his passing. This brought tears to my eyes and a sadness to my heart. He was such a wonderful Dr. to my children and a great teacher to me in helping me be a better parent to my children and I use those skill today with my grand children.

Dr Gall will live on in my household through the stories we have of him. Rest in peace Dr Gall. By the way, Malik eventually grew into his head (lol) and he's in his Jr year away in college.

Dr. Gall was a truly amazing man and a wonderful pediatrician. We are blessed with having known him.

When my wife (Barb) was pregnant with our daughter (Emma) in 1999, we did our usual "rule of 3" practice for important decisions, and interviewed 3 pediatricians. With the first two, we had very careful, logical discussions about babies. When we met John, he took us into his back room, and with a twinkle in his eye, before we could even begin asking our carefully prepared questions, said "Let me tell you how it's going to be", and proceeded to tell us what would happen, how we would fall in love with our child, and what the first few months as new parents would be like.

When we left, there was no question. We had Emma's pediatrician. And he was exactly right about everything.

When John visited us in the hospital (without us even asking for him), he measured Emma's grip, looked her in the eyes, and then told us not to worry about retirement, she would be a CEO some day. Now at age 15, she's a leader and a go-getter, and probably going to be a lawyer (already writing college-level papers about abolishing the death penalty, etc.) Looks like John was right, again.

It's hard to put into words, but I think John's special 'magic' was that he could tell the important truths behind all of the practical matters... all at the same time. The world is a better place for having someone who could talk about how to *love* our children in the same conversation about how to take care of them, with a light, tender, and yet practical touch.

I'm delighted to learn from his obituary about all the other books (besides "Dancing with Elves") he's written; so he has one last gift for us.
