I worked for Doctor (we all referred to Dr.Rothwell as Doctor) for several years and it was the best job I ever had.
Doctor was an esteemed physician who was respected by his peers, and a remarkable human being.
Only in heaven will we know how many Doctor helped along lifes way. He loved the Lord deeply and his heart was always open to human need. Doctor came to my side durning a very difficult time in my life. I cant imagine getting through it without his wisdom and strong presence all along the way.
Doctor was a brilliant professional with a sense of humor that simply would not quit. He always saw the humorous side of situations and could tell a story like no other. He was a Periodontist who performed intricate oral surgeries and he would have his patients laughing during the surgeries. Laughter was free-flowing in our office. Our purpose was to support Doctor
in his healing ministry and the happy, positive atmosphere contributed to that.

They had a match made in Heaven describes Doctors beautiful wife, Linda. They were perfect together and had a forever love. Linda describes herself as Harrys straight man. Doctor would get us all laughing and she would urge him on.
I had a trip planned to visit Doctor and Linda the first of this year. My husband and I went on an extended trip in January and upon return the virus hit. I am disappointed It wasnt possible but at age 83 I look forward to seeing him in heaven and feeling his warm hug. At that time I will be seeing my deceased husband, Dale, and my birth family, and next in line will be my beloved friend and brother in Jesus, Doctor.
