I see this post about the doctor and it reminded me of someting from back in November 1983. At the visitation of my mother I was standing at the coffin when an older gentleman walked up to me. I recognized him as Doctor Becknell who had for years been the family doctor and who had delivered me into this world. He was also the doctor who broke the news to me and Pop that my Mom was dying of cancer. After talking with the family at the coffin for a few minutes I looked in the far corner of the room and saw this man crying uncontrolably. That's what they mean by a "Family Doctor".

He was a good man. He did more for people and never said a word about it. He was so good to me and my mom after my dad passed.

He was a good man. To bad Manchester foes not have more doctors like him. You know in his time you never heard of doctors performing unnecessary procedures on patients for monetary gain, such as all the heart doctors at St Joes! And these same doctors lacking any compassionate toward the patients receiving these unnecessary procedures! This man truly cared for his patients
