Ladd Hayden Metzner

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Dave La Rochelle, md on September 10, 2002:

I am sensitive to any deaths of class mates, or those who I have had the privilege of serving with. I have been diagnosed with cancer and have gone thru the stages of treatment, emotional turmoil, and fears.
I am still a survivor and hope to be able to die of another problem many years down the road. I give my love and sympathy to the family, and pray their ordeal was not drawn out, and extended beyond what would be a medical miracle if he survived. Obviously, certain cancers, by their aggressiveness, do not leave many survivors. We are
here for a short time, so love, and enjoy while you can. Dave La Rochelle, MD '65
