I worked with "Dr. B" and he was such a caring, kind man. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Godspeed my friend.

Jan,
I so enjoyed having the honor of working with Dr. Boelter at Vision Park. A man of high morals,, amazing character and a sense of humor unrivaled by the best of comedians. His smile could light up the darkest of rooms! I shall miss him but I know we'll all be united again with trumpets blaring!

New in Des Moines over 40 years ago, I happened onto Dr. Boelter when, as I recall, he practiced on Polk Boulevard. He was a most careful and encouraging doctor, and a truly good and kind man.

Once on Christmas Eve Day, I took my young daughter Lisa into his office on some pretext, and he took the time to make a "production" of surprising her with her first pair of contact lenses.
The Boelter kids all happened to have me for eighth grade English, and I remember them each very clearly and fondly. I am very sorry for your family's loss.
