Mr.Elmer Stauch was one of my all time favorite patients. He suffered with several different and sometimes serious medical problems, but not once did I see him lose faith. He was exceedingly kind with me and everyone in my office. I considered him a personal friend and I'll miss him dearly in the years ahead.
