It is with great sadness that we inform you that two of our beloved POA patients have passed away suddenly over the past few weeks.
Tony Muniz of Costa Rica, 3/15/11, age 55. His gentle spirit and good humor brightened our days. We always looked forward to visits from Tony and his wonderful Barb.
Mr. Richard Wynn, 3/24/11, age 71. Mr. Wynn captured our affection and respect as he set and achieved his prosthetic goals. It was so wonderful to see him up and walking, traveling, and enjoying life!
Our thoughts and prayers are with both of their families, and our hearts go out to them at this sad time.
