I was heartbroken to hear of Dorland's passing. I was unable to attend the funeral yesterday. I am devastated. Dorland was one of my favorite patients in all of the 30 years that I have been a nurse. He was so dedicated to taking care of himself and learning all he could about diabetes. He truly was an inspiration to me. He claims I taught him a lot, but in reality, he taught me. He was so kind. He even served on our Advisory Committee to help improve our program. Sometimes when you reflect on why you chose to be nurse, you wonder if it was for a reason. Dorland made me feel like I was a nurse for a reason and that I made a difference. I will be forever grateful and I will never forget Dorland. He was a gem of a man. Condolences to his family, I know you have been through a lot recently and losing both Dorland and Robin. What a tremendous loss to you all. Dorland spoke often of Robin, he was a proud father and proud of his family. I feel blessed to have know Dorland, and I know you all feel blessed to have had both of them with you for as long as you did.
