The family would like to express their deep appreciation for the extraordinary care given to our mother over the years by two outstanding physicians, Dr. Melanie McKnight and Dr. Uyen Caro. Their knowledge and expertise made them physicians, but it was their hearts that made them family to us. We truly believe it was their skills and compassion that extended her life, giving us more time with this phenomenal woman.
