If you didn't know, this past November 11th was Veteran's Day. Take time, now, to remember the veterans who have sacrificed their lives, families, health and welfare so that we may enjoy and celebrate ours.
Greetings to my KDA-member friends:
I retired 18 months ago as Louisville Dental Society's (LDS) Executive Secretary and I am loving retirement and missing Jim (Dr. James Lewis, LDS member, who passed last Thanksgiving.) I had a total knee replacement in July and am doing therapy at Milestone twice a week. I occasionally meet my former co-workers for lunch. I was Dr. Rocco Patella's guest at LDS Day at the Races at Churchill Downs, where it was great fun seeing so many dentists and staff that I know. Miss you all. Susan Lewis
