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

I have been a Pregnancy Care Center Director for nearly 32 years - and the film series "Whatever Happened to the Human Race" was part of that journey for me. Dr. Koop changed my life through that series... I never met this man - but he changed the course of my life. Blessings - peace. Melinda Gardner

We had the honor of serving under Dr. Koop when He was the Surgeon General.
Dr. Koop was loved and respected by all for his dedication, contributions to mankind, humor, kindness and so much
more.
We will keep Dr. Koop in our thoughts and prayers. He will be greatly missed.
Fondly,

I greatly admire Dr. Koop and how he stood up for what he believed in. Being a man of faith, he totally ignored the snickers of others when praying to God. Thank you Dr. Koop. God speed.

Dr. Koop was described by my grandmother as the most kind and caring doctor she had ever met. When my father was a baby, she couldn't control his crying. She rushed him to the hospital and Dr. Koop diagnosed him, his appendix had burst. He preformed emergency surgery on my father. My grandfather had returned from WWII with malaria and was not well either. They didn't have much money and Dr. Koop told them not to worry about not having enough money. If it wasn't for him, I or my son wouldn't be here today.
Rest in peace Doctor. My life is greatly due to you. I will never forget her loving story of you.

Sonia Sotomayor's bio is #1 on the NY Times list; Dr. Koop's unique place in history was assured a long time ago; they both have made their respective marks many times over;
God bless his family & so very many friends and admirers wherever they may be;
now others will walk in his footsteps, fondly recall his infinite # of contributions to his fellow man & continue his legacy of excellence. Take care.
