"Doc gets one wrong"

To the editor:

My Dad has had a heart defect since childhood.  Many decades ago, our Dr. Robert Molenaar told him he could live to age 50 or so -- IF he took care of himself.  My Dad turned 85 this week!  I'm glad Doc got that one wrong.

 I also want to thank Doc for one he got right:  A few years after high school, when I was still "aimless", Doc told me it was time to get off my lazy a** and get myself an education.  Since no one had ever confronted me like that before, it made an impact.  Soon after, I started working my way through college.  Although it took years to complete my degree, my life took a different course.  I'm not sure that would have happened without Doc's "gentle" prodding.  Thanks Doc!
