I loved Doc ! I'll miss him. I admire him for being the man he was and the caring he had for each and every animal he touched. He was a fine man and a true gentleman with a heart of gold. I love and will always remember the moments when he said things that made me laugh. He had a great sense of humor. Once he told us that he delivered a cow on a ship during WW II. Amazing. I told him to write a book... like James Herriott did. He said his sis-in-law told him to too. I loved the way he defended an animal.. once when people brought a dog in with the collar grown to the dog's neck, Doc was quite adament and let them know. He was wise and truthful and wonderful. He gave me a picture of himself and his horses, back at Thisiledown days. He sure was a handsome man ! Taking care of all the Cleveland Mounted Police horses too ! I'll never forget and am grateful to have the honor and privelge that it was to know such a class-act person ! I read once , ' The World Knows Little of It's Greatest Heroes. ' He is one of them ! it was fun to talk to him about things. My husband and I took the poodles in. He had trouble with his throat with horseness that day and he said ' Listen carefully. I don't want to repeat things. " It was memorable that day . I asked him a question and he looked at my hubby and said, " Now what part of this does she not understand? " They laughed and of course he had that twinkle in his eyes. Our family will miss him . One more thing... he went in to the hospital to check on his patients every day .
Amazing one of a kind man. Thank you for listening.
