    I’m sorry to hear you’ve lost someone who was so wonderful in caring for you Tambre. That is not always easy to find. This is a beautiful tribute as well as a really important message. It’s easy to forget that time passes and life waits for no one. Better to forgive quickly and share the love we have, thank you for the reminder.

    Relish the time you had, the advice he proffered, and the impetus to you own life he provided.
    That is among the best ways to honor the passing of someone.

    I know you’ve already started down that path!

    This is a beautiful and timely message. We never know when the last time is here and all too often take people and things for granted, forgetting to let them know how much they mean to us. Thank you for sharing your story and compassionate tribute to your friend.

    My eyes are brimming. We need more health care professionals who understand that we are people first and not conditions or treatments. And yes we need remember that we may never get the chance to say we love some one so we need to tell them often. Hug EVERYONE you care about as often as you can

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories and your meaningful connection you had. A gentle reminder to hold our family and friends close, don’t take life for granted and live each day to it fullest. Sometimes I get to wrapped up with ‘stuff’ and it really doesn’t matter. Its those around us that really do.

    My last interaction with him was when I stopped by to visit and re-introduce him to my daughter, who he delivered back in December of 2010. I wanted to thank him for helping us through my rough start with my pregnancy. He was a special man, without a doubt. He is a legend at Cedar Sinai, as I came to learn. His warmth, confidence and calm have a way of permeating the room and my delivery was as smooth, peaceful and beautiful as one can expect. My family will never forget him.
