My thoughts and prayers are with you all! I am so honored to have met such a wonderful man!
Dr. Cunningham was my family Dr. when I was 8 years old in 1954, He always remembered our names, He delivered my first son in '67, I saw him until 1987, I will never forget him, a wonderful man, full of compassion and caring.
Beth & Susie, I am so sorry to hear about your father. He was such a nice man and I can still remember him doing my husband and I's blood tests to get married. Prayers for your family.
I can truly say Dr.Cunningham saved my life when I was 4 yrs old in 1963. His name has been a regular all my life . Every time someone questions me about the scar on my neck I repeat the story about Dr. Cunningham saving me. If it had not been for him being my regular dr and him coming back from a trip just in time I would not have survived. My parents were forever thankful to him . God is blessing you now Dr. Cunningham ---- thank you for saving my life. Linda Foreman-Keene
Dr. Cunningham was my Dr for many yrs. He was a very kind and caring Dr. He wasn't all about the money or the drug pad. He cared.
He was the best uncle a boy could have had. I will miss him very much.
My mother taught Dean in 7th. Grade in Edwards Mo. He was the apple of her eye and took great credit for his brilliant mind
He was our family doctor in the early years of our family in Springfield. We loved living next door to Richard and Cindy and their beautiful family for 17 years.
Dr Cunningham was our Family doctor for many years, He will be missed dearly, prayers for the Family

This man was our family doctor years ago and we all loved him. His compassion and caring for his patients was without compare. I remember going to him as a child and still have the info sheet from my 6 week checkup from 1958 that my mother kept all these years till her death in 2001. Prayers to Dr Cunningham's family and friends. He is remembered by many.
