TWBD

I spoke with my mother earlier this morning. She had some news for me.

The World's Best Doctor had died on Tuesday. I sat in complete shock as she read me the obituary.

I know he was sick- he had to stop working. But it just seemed to happen so fast. It seems so unfair that such a wonderful person who has helped so many bring lives into this world should leave us so young. He was only 49! I also just found out (upon my visit to my OB on Wednesday) that the nurse at my clinic is TWBD's wife. I had an incling, but I never felt comfortable coming out and asking her. I am just feeling such sadness for her and their little girl.

I will always remeber him. I don't know where we would be today without him.

So sorry for the loss. Loosing someone like that is a great loss to the community and all the lives he had touched. It hurts when someone good dies young.
