Ty, I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your Grandfather Bingham. He sounds like quite a man who lived a wonderful and fulfilling life. As you said on Facebook, he has returned to those who love him and have left this earthly existence. I'm sure there is much joy in Heaven as he reunites with all of them. Let your memories of Grandpa and the special times you had together comfort you throughout your life. Be sure to share all those special stories about him with Cohen and any future children you might have. One thing is for certain about Grandpa...he had a great grandson named Ty. Love you.

It was with sadness that I read of the Frank's passing. He was truely one of my favorite patients and I always enjoyed the stories he told of his travels when he came in for his appointments. My thoughts are with your family in your time of grief. Frank will certainly be missed, but we know he is on to greater glory. Thank you for the honor of caring for Frank over the last few years.
