On Thanksgiving Day 2002, my husband, David died suddenly at our home. During these past few months, this community in which I live, work and worship has shown boundless love and support to my children, to me and to David’s dental practice. Many local dentists have given of their time and talents, providing continued dental care to David’s patients. These professionals have sacrificed personal vacations, days off or have come out of retirement in order to keep David’s practice functioning. They have provided outstanding dental care, encouragement to the staff and invaluable advice during this time of grief and transition. I am deeply indebted to these kind, self-sacrificing individuals who I count as true friends who left loving footprints on my heart.

Our Suffolk office doors have closed, but the Zuni office continues to run. It is an honor to live in such a caring community.

A thousand thank you’s to all.
