    My heart goes to Dr. Vu’s family in this time of healing. I found out today that I had saw Dr. Vu five days before he passed. He was a gentle and caring man. I shared this with my colleague, who also went to him and we had a cry and then shared some moments of Dr. Vu as he always just made you feel comfortable with a little humor. The last time I saw him, he said some important things to me, that are life changing. I will never forget it. I’m truly sorry for your loss and may he rest in peace. God bless.

    We were deeply saddened to learn of your loss. Dr. Vu was our family doctor for approximately 5 years. We were extremely fortunate to have had such a caring and knowledgeable physician. When he decided to move his medical practice, we gladly moved along with him. His smile and laughter will be fondly remembered. During the course of our lives, we sometimes encounter people who truly impact on our lives for the better. Dr. Vu was one of these special people. We feel exceedingly blessed to have had known him. Our sincerest condolences to Dr. Vu’s family.
