Condolences

My sincere sympathy to your entire family. I had the pleasure of working closely with both Harold and Iris at Tawas St. Joseph. Iris was the perfect person for medical records,, sharp, precise, completely aware patient privacy and she ran a super department. Harold and I had a few harrowing experience together while he was on the ambulance service. He was always so calm. I enjoyed working with both of them. They were outstanding people. Rose Shoemaker
