  7. Dear Eck family
    Your folks were some of my earliest patients, probably you first, but all of you were so special to me. I brought my family here because I wanted this kind of environment, and the Ecks were a big part of my happiness. I was blessed to find you. Mom was always a neat visit, usually with Dolores, as were each of you. I hope I was not obnoxious with my words at the ceremony.
