Pediatrician Dr. Robert Butts died last Friday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was not my children’s doctor, but over the years I’ve heard many, many people speak of him with great fondness. A Caring Bridge page set up in his honor lets you learn more about him and his life. You can also leave a message for his family there. Michele Ellson over at The Island also has more details about Dr. Butts, and there will be a memorial service in his honor at Alameda’s Immanuel Lutheran Church on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 1:00 pm.
