When I Lost my Husband

In 2010, my husband passed away. Dr. Alter had been our doctor for approximately 15 years. My husband's daughter, who came from New Jersey, needed a form signed by a doctor to take back to work. I called Dr. Alter's office and asked if she would sign. When I arrived, Dr. Alter took me into a room, sat with me as we cried and shared together the loss I was experiencing. All she needed to do was sign a paper, yet she took the time to comfort me for at least 30 minutes. My husband loved her, and so do I - all these years later!
