(1957 to the mid-90's).
He brought me and my sisters into the world and cared for our health and that of our parents.
The man retired in the 1990's and lives a happy, healthy, life, in his mid-90's.
2. I am grateful to my original eye doctor, a man who had a decades old practice in the Claremont Village.
He prescribed my first pair of eye glasses when I was 5 years old, and served as my eye doc for around 20 years. He retired 15 or so years ago, and died, a google search discovered, at age 88, in 2009.
