R.I.P. Dr. DeKlotz

I learned today that our dear pediatrician, Dr. DeKlotz, passed away yesterday afternoon after a short and sudden bout with pancreatic cancer.  He was a wonderful doctor to all 5 of our children, and he will be greatly missed.

Here are some of our most recent pictures of our visits with Dr. DeKlotz, just a few months ago:

  1. Oh no. He seemed like such a gentle man. I felt he did a great job for all the kids.

  2. So sad! After all these years I bet you had developed a friendship or at least gotten to know each other well.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss! The pictures... oh my goodness! They speak volumes. I bet his wife or family would enjoy seeing those photos :)

    1. I did end up sending some to the family/kids...I figured, they probably don't have any pictures of their dad at work (I know I don't have any of Marcus giving presentations!). I think they will use them for a display at the funeral. The Portland area lost a great pediatrician, and a great Catholic man. :o(

  4. I`m sorry.... :( And the pictures look like one day after another, cause the room looks like it never changed..... They are all SO cute!! (As baby's!!!)
