    This dear, dear man has been both my Doctor and my friend for over 45 years. He birthed my Grand Children, Dr. Meaghan Beasley, MacKenzie Gross Kammerer and Cole Gross. He has literally saved my life more than once and I considered him to be the best diagnostician I’ve ever known. His death has broken my heart as well the hearts of all my children. He will be fondly thought of as a part of my family and will be sadly missed by us all. His wings are beautiful…
