Bob Rose has been my on-line friend for about 5 years now. He was born in 1938 0n Long Island, in a suburb of New York City.
He graduated from New York University in 1963 (when I was only 11 years old), and after two years as a navy medical officer in Guam, he became a board certified medical internist and practised solo medicine (mostly geriatrics) on eastern Long Island for 27 years.
In 1996 he retired and moved to Georgia (presently in the Appalachian town of Jasper) to be nearer to his first son and grand children.
Following is his article for your reading pleasure.
