DEAR ABBY: My wife, "Margie," recently lost her five-year battle with leukemia. Something I found particularly upsetting was the apathetic attitude of her doctor and his staff.
Margie was seeing a specialist in a city 300 miles from our home. During this period, we thought of the doctor and his staff more as our friends. Margie would often bring them home-cooked meals or pastries from a bakery and made all the women a set of dish towels.
After my wife passed away, I sent a note to the doctor and his staff, thanking them and expressing my gratitude. I never received one message in return. I understand they treat many patients, but don't you think SOMEONE could have given me a call or sent a sympathy card?
