When I first heard about Your Front Page, I knew it was the perfect fit to honor my father, Dr. Robert Dolehide, on his 80th birthday. I just couldn't really see how you'd be able to put so many pieces of his life together.
I'm still not quite sure how you did it, or how you managed to get a hold of my seven siblings, on top of other family and friends. But I am grateful that you did.
With The Good Doctor Gazette, you have created a warm, funny, authentic keepsake that will serve as a legacy not only for Dad's 46 grandchildren, but countless others whose lives will be touched by learning about his life.
What a superb job you did of organizing the many arenas of Dad's life, and weaving in anecdotes and other memories that revealed the impact he has made. Maybe one of the most rewarding aspects of the piece was that it sparked so many recollections we had nearly forgotten. You also discovered things some of us never knew, so as Christmas approaches, we now have even more material to talk about!
On behalf of all the Dolehides, young and young at heart, many thanks for your heartfelt work.
