A truly great man lived to be 96; God bless one & all who cherish his memory; we could have very easily used 96 Dr. Koop's (literally), but we take what we can get.

I had the pleasure of having lunch with Dr. Koop many years ago. Not only did he have my admiration for his great work as a physician and our U.S. Surgeon General, he also had my admiration for who he was as a person. I enjoyed meeting him and spending time that day, and also remember his quick wit and how he made me laugh. My sorrows to his family on their loss.

Dr.Koop became a family friend through CMDA, and many years ago Dad and "Chick" travelled together to lay groundwork for future medical missions. They were great Christian brothers here on earth and now I like to think of how this friendship continues in the City of God.
May God bless and comfort your family.

I always admired Dr. Koop. Now he belongs to the ages past, present, future. Christians believe in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting; those of us who never met him on Earth can meet him in Heaven. I truly appreciate Dr. Koop's statement about who he served: “I am the surgeon general of the heterosexuals and the homosexuals, of the young and the old, of the moral or the immoral, the married and the unmarried. I don't have the luxury of deciding which side I want to be on. So I can tell you how to keep yourself alive no matter what you are. That's my job.” I have a son studying to become a physician and I will tell him to keep that quote before him, and to read about the lives of compassionate and skilled physicians and surgeons such as Dr. Koop. "Well Done Good and Faithful Servant".

So sorry for the loss of a truly great man. I haven't smoked in years due to his insistance that everyone should stop.I listened to you Dr.Koop, thank you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and loved ones.
