Not sure what to say?

To the Giebenhain family:
I only met Dr Giebenhain once, but I had a great conversation with him. We spoke of the history of North Clinic, his passion for his patients, and the legacy he left behind when he retired.
I have the pleasure of working at North Clinic, which he founded, and I still have patients and staff talk to me about Dr. Giebenhain. He was an incredible man, a great doctor, and he will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

On behalf of the staff at Courage Center, please accept our condolences on the loss of Dr. Giebenhain. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

My mother was one of his first patients and I was one of his first babies. I remember a home visit with the traditional black bag when I had the measles. My parents were his and Dr Hass' patients until both docs retired and they stayed with North Clinic until the end. May God rest his soul.

Dear John and Elaine, our hearts and prayers are with you and your family . May the circle of your community surround you, the strength of God hold you and the love of your Father/ Grandfather stay in your heart always. Mary and Mark Peterson/ Greenwood

Dr. Giebenhain, along with Dr. Hass, were my first doctors. I remember my mom taking my sister and I to a kind of house where their clinic was.

He was a doctor when doctors took time to listen to their patients, got to know them and went the extra mile in treating them. It is nice to read how wonderful your dad...

John was a medical school classmate, and he and Betty were good friends of my wife and me. He was a fine doctor, well loved by his patients. He will be greatly missed.

dr. g took care of me from birth til i moved away in my twenties,he was always easy to talk to and a good sense of humour, he is still the topic of many stories when my family get's together he will be missed,

Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I have often spoke your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in heart.

Dear Mary, Cathy, John, and Jean,

I sent a message earlier today. It hasn't appeared. Perhaps I used more than my share of words, so I'll be brief.

Your father was an excellent man. He dedicated himself to every facet of his life: husband, father, physician and friend

I was most impressed by his gratitude for each of the blessings of his life. A humble man. Even after 64 years of marriage, he couldn't believe his good fortune that Betty "dumped" a...
