Condolence & Memory Journal

I just read this week the death notice for Dr. John. and I commend him and all of you to my prayers. I am a Sister of Mercy and was at Misericordia Hospital as a nurse from 1960 to 1978 and I remember your dad well. He was always kind hearted and very attentive to his patients. As for staff, he greeted us with a smile and a few words, yes the time of the day....... he was a real gentleman and a trusted physician. May he now be reaping the reward of a life well lived......a life of service to others. Rest in the loving arms of your God, Dr. Kotakis.
