    Dear Family,
    We are told and taught as professionals to maintain a “distance” from your patient. How could anyone be distant from Mr Peter Atham? I can honestly say that I got so much more than I gave your wonderful husband and father. The hours...  more

    This is a beautiful tribute. As Tom knows, I lost my dad—age 97—a few months ago, and every note he touches on in this message strikes a chord with me. Dad’s are special—what a cliché and what an insight at the same time. I wish I had had the...  more
