A thank you for time served

As most of you already know from last week’s edition of the Houston Today, Dr. Peter Morry will be leaving his family practice in the end of February to return home to his family in Newfoundland.

As most of you already know from last week’s edition of the Houston Today, Dr. Peter Morry will be leaving his family practice in the end of February to return home to his family in Newfoundland.

To say that he will be leaving a hole in this community in his absence is a gross understatement.

It is very easy to say that Dr. Morry is a one of a kind doctor — in a very personable and positive way. Not to worry — while one can always find another family doctor through good old research, hard work and dedication and the wonder of walk-in clinics, one cannot replace a doctor like Dr. Morry.

Dr. Morry has been a gift to this community on a number of levels.

He has always been there for his patients far over and above the call of duty from his senior patients right up to the young ones he looks after.

He is so incredibly friendly and warm to everyone, his Newfoundland roots are showing.

Dr. Morry has always supported any local groups, causes and local business that may have asked for his help.

Personally, I have always appreciated his humor and well timed off-colored jokes. Nothing is off limits — I have listened to a number of blonde jokes from him in my day — and completely appreciate them, and in an odd way, will even miss them.

I know that a lot of people are getting worked up about him leaving, but instead of negative thoughts, pop in to his office some time before he leaves Houston just to say thanks.

You could say thanks to his receptionists — Kim has been the organized steady and continuous butt kicker in that office for so long — she may deserve a medal as well for her sheer dedication and wonderful demeanor to Dr. Morry and all of his patients.

So, from the bottom of my It Dawned on Me’s heart – Thank you, Dr.Morry, for your time, your interest and hard work, and mostly, thank you for being such a wonderful human being to us all.

God Bless.
