I am very sorry to learn of Dr. Watson’s passing. I always enjoyed his conversation, as did my mother, Thelma Kolding. Dr. Watson was a very interesting and wise man. Please accept my sympathy, Valerie, and extend my condolences to your family.

Dear Valerie, I was so sorry to hear this. I benefited from Dr. Watson’s great care for many years. I think he told at least some of the same stories every time I saw him, but no matter! He made my feet feel great. I also looked forward to seeing you. Take care of yourself. I will be thinking about you.
