Among the many, I am grateful to have lived with Eileen for nearly forty years, to
.have watched our children become mature, accomplished adults and to have had the remarkable privilege of a professional life working with outstanding caregivers, educators and friends.
Although I have had some excellent teachers, those who taught me the most were the Resident Physicians and my fellow caregivers, educators and staff with whom I worked for a quarter of a Century at GWUMC.
Socrates was known as a questioner of everything and everyone. His style of teaching—immortalized as the Socratic Method—involved not conveying knowledge but rather asking question after clarifying question until his students arrived at their own understanding. The way I remember our years together: we were all students together, searching for, and sometimes finding some truth.
I regret that I am not able to attend the reunion, but I want all of my friends to know how much I value the experiences and friendships we shared.
