I was so sorry to hear of Dr. Billings passing. He delivered my baby in 1960-and he would have been proud that she is a LPN, at Toledo Hospital. My husband put a knife through his hand trying to separate frozen pork chops, he came in after hrs and sewed him up. He was kind and helped a lot of people. You have my deepest sympathy for the family. I knew his father through their best friends (the Middaugh,s) . May God be with you through this trying time. Nova Patterson Millbury, Ohio
