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.

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.

((Purple and mantee's family and friends)). I am so sorry.

People tell you exactly who they are...why expect them to be what they are not ....will be divorcing the selfish creep.

I'm so sorry, it's so sad the whole family is gone.

Forgiveness is giving up the possibility of a better past.
