Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Robert Starr. While I was in medical school, he was my supervisor in a family practice clerkship based in Viroqua, though my medical school in Chicago. Dr. Starr did this as. favor to me and my family so that I could be with my grandfather during some of his last days. I learned from him what it was to be the kind of physician that I wanted to be. I had enormous respect and affection for him.
