I can particularly remember one of my patients who brought my daughter’s first book. He and his wife told me that it was their daughter’s first book and that she loved and cherished it for years. He died at home. His wife sent me a card informing me of his death and thanking me for my help. Needless to say, I did not get that card on time. Their next appointment was not cancelled, and she probably received a reminder call from our office. She took that opportunity to come and visit me in person. Unaware of the fact, I as usual went out in the waiting area and saw her alone (fortunately, I did not call his name). Watching me a little surprised, she asked me if I did not know. I was quite disappointed and a little ashamed that I never got the card she had mailed several weeks previously. We sat in the office, since there was a blocked time of 30 min for them anyway. She showed me their family pictures and shared some of their great memories. It made me feel like I was a family member. I am fully cognoscente of the fact that it is practically impossible to be able to do this with the families of all our deceased patients.
