A Very Special Thank You

A Thank You Letter to Dr. Jeff Johnson


“I’m not sure if you remember this but . . . when my son was 3 years old he got really sick, so I brought him to see you. You diagnosed him with type 1 diabetes and saved his life! I was thinking about how proud of him I am and what a great kid he is and it made me think of you! He is now 17, a junior in high school. He has his license, a great girlfriend, and a bright future and I truly believe it is all because of you. I am very grateful for my son! He may be grown up, but I will never forget that awful day when I thought I might lose him. He will always be my little boy! I don’t remember if I ever said thank you. The time we’ve had together and the memories we’ve made will never be forgotten. You will never be forgotten. From the bottom of my heart I thank you . . . Happy New Year because I know mine will be because of you. Thank you always.” —Kelly P. (and Cody)
