To the editor,

Loved by All

I was very sad when I heard about Dr. Nabors passing. He was my Doctor at a time in my life when things were not going so well.

The first word that came to me was HUMANITARIAN. The dictionary has it as an adjective; and defined as concern with people’s welfare and the reduction of suffering. Doctor Nabors turned this word into a verb, practicing this with all his patients. He made house calls. How many Doctors do you know do this?

I always teased him about not wearing socks, he always took it with good humor. Now I don’t wear socks. His death is sweet and bitter. My mind’s eye has him reuniting with his beloved parents. A son hugging both parents, with a Father who does not care anymore about socks and a beloved Mother holding a favored Son. Then I think about his sisters, that is the bitter. There is always a hole when someone passes in your family. Keeping them in my prayers and hoping that grief will somehow soften as time passes.

For his patients feel glad that he touched our lives and somehow we are all the better for it. He will always be remembered with a smile and warmth in our hearts. He practiced the Hippocratic Oath with love, endurance and loyalty. He was on top of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy.

Doctor Nabors was a Self-Actualized Human Being.

He was loved.
