One of the medical students I mentored several years ago was killed this morning in a plane crash along with his wife and teenage son. This man, this doctor, was a true man of God. He was the most kind, caring and compassionate of physicians.
Godspeed my friend. You made a difference in thousands of lives.

I am so sorry for your loss. But can you think of a more perfect exit for someone so close to God?
May you find peace and comfort in knowIng that Gods hand chose him today.

I'm so sorry to hear this. How tragic.

Don’t get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I trust you is a better compliment than I love you, because you may not trust the person you love, but you can always love the person you trust. - Unknown
