Just saw this notice. Dr Caspersen delivered my son in September 2001. He was a wonderful man, brilliant physician, and made going to the OB something not to be dreaded! It makes me sad to hear of his passing. May his family know, and I'm sure you do, that he was a good man impacting many, many people, and he will be missed.

Dr. Caspersen treated me in 1970, when I was a young college co-ed. When you're 19 years old, discussing birth control and getting an IUD is a pretty awkward endeavor. Dr. Caspersen used compassion, honesty and abundant good humor to make the whole experience as comfortable as possible. Whenever I came into the office for an appointment, I could tell how much he was cherished by his staff and colleagues. I share their great opinion of him. My sincere sympathy to his family and friends.

Dear Caspersen Family,
I was looking for any article Dr. Caspersen may have written about the delivery of my twins in June 1987, when I found this memory book. Many prayers for your family. It was the first time in his career he had to use forceps during a C section. My Son's head was so big, Dr. C couldn't remove him, even one handed. That was some day in the delivery room, with all the cracking up going on, as was his way and one of best things about him; the other his frank manner. We were a special case with one twin breach and the other twins head in birth canal at same time. It made for a lot of snappy comments and laughs by all of us, which surprised a few of the multitude of Students observing. I still chuckle about that. I once told him he had known my entire reproductive system from beginning to end. The day of my hysterectomy he came into my room bent in half, due to back issues, and became my hero again. So dedicated that he would come to surgery in such shape, Wow. He talked easily with me about that and in future that truly kept me unafraid to have my own back fusion. If he was half as funny at home as he was at work then you were very blessed.

Dr. Caspersen delivered our son in August 2004. It was a very difficult induced labor (42+ hours) and at one point, it seemed very possible we might lose the child. After declining an emergency c-section, Cap asked me to turn off the video camera, and went back to work with the vacuum extractor, saying "I'm only allowed to pull on this three times, then we have to stop." ON THE 4TH PULL, the baby came out, in a single burst: the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck twice. Cap's exact words to me (clearly delighted), "That's not how they taught us in Medical School". The baby CRIED his heart out, but he was intact and breathing. After poor APGAR scores the baby looked better, and his head bruise was gone a few weeks later. That baby is a strapping 9 year old boy today, thanks to Cap. I will be forever grateful that he didn't follow the rules that day.

The celebration of life was just what the Dr. ordered. I'm sure he would have been pleased. Although I've only known him between 4 and 5 years I considered him a wonderful friend. I met him in a MAC bridge class and played bridge with him at least 2x/wk since. He was so much fun, always positive and optimistic. We really miss him. I enjoyed meeting all his wonderful family yesterday. You had such a warm, caring and humorous father and grandfather. He handled his illness with such grace.
