Happy re­tire­ment Dr. Power

The Compass - - Editorial -

I have known of some in my life that fit this the high­est of hon­ours, but none of them fits it more highly then you, Ger­ald Power.

There are no words that can express the feel­ing of kind­ness, of care and love that one hu­man be­ing gives an­other.

These are the hall­marks of what you, Dr. Ger­ald Power, have given Dal­las and I ever since we came un­der your med­i­cal care a few years ago. Our ap­pre­ci­a­tion and how we feel about you is like­wise not ex­press­ible in words, but the best ex­pres­sion of that feel­ing would be to say your man­ner and be­hav­iour has stirred in us a great kind­ness and love for you.

I can­not think of a greater hon­our to give an­other hu­man be­ing, and doc­tor, than to say that their char­ac­ter has af­fected the lives of oth­ers and this is ex­actly how you have af­fected Dal­las and I, and your pa­tients — you have filled us with that love and com­pas­sion for oth­ers!

Man’s great­est gift to an­other hu­man be­ing is to be able to help them, his great­est char­ac­ter to be will­ing to give it!

I have known of some in my life that fit this, the high­est of hon­ours, but none of them fits it more highly then you, Ger­ald Power. Great doc­tor. Great hu­man be­ing.

God has blessed you.
