My sympathies go out to Dr. Ganderson’s beloved wife and sons and to his Womens’ Place family, especially Miss Ellie, and indeed, to us all over this terrible, sudden loss. I felt I had been punched when I read his name in the paper that morning. A younger doctor told me years ago, when he learned I was his patient, that the most important lesson he learned in all his medical training was from Dr. G. He taught him that it is as important how you treat the person as how you treat the patient. I remember when he called me personally to tell me a test indicated I needed a procedure. He explained the procedure in detail and that it would be painful, with after effects. He told me he recommended that I get it and soon, but that it was up to me, think about it and call when I was ready. Then he asked if he could put me on hold. Very shortly, I heard a woman’s voice saying, “OK, what time is good for you?” and I had to laugh. After the procedure, he had called my home before I even got there to ask how I was and left a message for me to call and let him know.

It was my pleasure to bring you brownies and wine, “the sweeter, the better”. I will miss the caring, the humor, the bears, the photos and the honest straight-forwardness. No one can ever fill those boots. RIP and ride well my dear Doctor.
