Dr. Simpson story was wonderful and personal

Thanks to Ann Baldelli for the article titled “6,000 babies later, retiring obstetrician still feels magic,” (Jan. 2), about Dr. Jeffrey Simpson. I think this article is very cool and important. Someone who delivered over 6,000 babies, stayed with his patients after his shift to make them more comfortable, and missed holidays and family dinners should not retire without getting some sort of recognition.

I can appreciate the hard work and sacrifices doctors make because I have a doctor in my family. This article is also important to me because Dr. Jeffrey Simpson delivered me 13 years ago on May 3 at New London's Lawrence + Memorial Hospital.
