Tony Koss Rev. Mr. June 25, 2012
Dear Bill, and sisters:   The first thing that comes to mind about your mother is her answering the phone at 2 am when Mrs. Koss had to call about a sick child.  It must have been a trying time for  her...awakened at all  hours.  yet, she always accomodated us.   Must have been her nurse training and instinct about sick children!  She was such a big part of the medical practice of your many times she signed us in at the office (the big old house) and took all the information that the Dr. would be needing.  Lots of lives were touched in this way...many of them still here in Harvard.   Our sincerest sympathy to all of you.   Your mom was the other part of a great medical team.  Tony and Doris Koss .
