Debbie and family;
So sorry to hear about the death of Dr Fry. He was such a sweet man and always so pleasant when
We all worked together at SGH. Thoughts and prayers for you during this time. Feel free to contact me sometime
when you start winding down from all the paper work, etc from Johns’ passing. Would love to hear from you.
Sincerely, Laura Lee Kaufman
