  1. I\’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. He was a patient of ours at Little Co of Mary Hospital Nuclear Medicine Department. Your father, grandfather always had a nice smile for everyone & was so pleasant to take care of. Dr. White always spent time talking to him. You were all truly blessed to have such a gentle, loving man as your husband, father and grandfather. It\’s awful to lose a parent. May he be at peace now. My prayers and sympathy are with you all now.
