(Taking a guess as to the correct forum to ask about this)
I came back from my holiday weekend to learn that one of our doctors (the one who founded our practice, in fact) had died on Memorial Day.
He was a great guy, very talented and knowledgable, as well as a sort of “daddy” to the practice. He had been fighting cancer for a couple of years now (although I’m not entirely certain his death was directly cancer-related) so we were expecting this somewhat, but it’s still sad.
Anyway, several of us in the office have discussed doing something to signify that the practice is in mourning. Nothing major, per se, but something like a lapel pin/ribbon, armband, etc. The practice (as an entity) has ordered a wreath “in memory” for the waiting room area, but I’m kind of stumped, as are the other people working on it.
Does anyone have any other ideas or suggestions for something we could do as a slightly more tangible reminder of our loss? I’d appreciate any suggestions - including “do nothing” (but explain why.)
sigh It’s been a long week, and it’s only Tuesday. The funeral isn’t until Sunday, so we’ve got a way to go yet, too.
Thanks for any & all suggestions.
