Requiem æternam dona ei, Domine.
Et lux perpetua luceat ei.
Requiescat in pace. Amen.

Dr. Koop was very influential in my decision to start eating a healthier diet during my first pregnancy when I was expecting twins. Since that time I completely changed my focus from working as an RN in a stressful medical job to helping people regain their health by eating a healthier diet and living a less stressful life. Thank you Dr. Koop. Blessings to his family and all those that were touched by his kind and caring soul. --Rene Oswald

On behalf of my mother, siblings and myself I send sincere condolences to the entire Koop family. Dr. Koop saved my brother's life at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia in 1961. He will always and forever be our family's hero. This is truly a sad day. What an absolutely wonderful man our nation has lost today.

Deepest sympathy to the family of Dr. Koop. He is our families hero having saved my brother, David Erb, in 1961. David had a rare form of cancer at the time and was just 6 months old when his first surgery was performed by Dr. Koop in Philadelphia. He will always and forever hold a dear place in the hearts of my mother, brother and me.

My family is still doing the "Koop Scoop" and now in fond memory of this wonderful caring man. We still say in our family "do the KOOP SCOOP" when we sit down on our sofa! Years ago Doctor Koop's had a national tv message to prevent people from common falls and broken hips. Prevent falls/ accidents by doing the "Koop Scoop" : plant two feet straight ahead, lower your bum to back edge of sofa then sit UP straight. Reverse: legs and feet straight ahead THEN slide off sofa onto legs and feet straight ahead STand Up Tall. (most falls happen when people's feet/legs are not planted straight ahead when they stand up and ankles/knees buckle and they fall:( in loving memory still doing the KOOP SCOOP! leslie in Colorado
