“If I were a rich person, I would take out a full page ad in the newspaper and tell the world how great you are. If I were a rich person, I would hire a plane to write across the sky how great you are. If I were a rich person, I would rent a billboard that would tell the world how great you are. Alas, I am not a rich person but I can write a letter that tells how great you are.
This year my husband [Ed] and I will enjoy celebrating our 50th anniversary. It is my firm belief that without the care afforded to him, we would not be so lucky. Thank you for taking Ed as a patient. You have been there in the middle of the night with Ed in the cath lab. I guess what I am trying to say is thank you for the anniversary. I intend on sending this letter to everyone I can think of. You are a credit to the medical profession as well as mankind. My world has been made better for knowing you.”
