My condolences to the whole Sisson Family. Dr. Sisson was a very kind man. He was my doctor when I had to get stitches as a 12 year old. I also met you all through AFS.

My condolences for your loss. Dr. Sisson was the very definition of a "gentleman surgeon", and those of us he helped train benefitted tremendously from his example. One of my fondest memories as residency finished was having dinner with the other Chief Residents and their wives at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Sisson, hoping that we too could one day have such a wonderful life and family. Thank you all for sharing him.
