Patients and Caregiver Stories

Honoring a friend

Greetings fellow Providence Caregiver Family,

I am Gerald Brown, a caregiver at Providence Medical Institute in Torrance, CA since March 2013. In the image provided, I am the man on the left, and beside me is my friend, David Reed. The occasion of this picture was an all-class reunion of Windsor Hills Elementary School in Los Angeles, where David and I met as 4th graders. We were classmates through junior high and high school.

Sadly, on Monday night, April 14, 2020, David succumbed to COVID-19 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. I wish to honor his memory by noting his passing is this space. Rest in peace, my friend.

You are welcome to read more about David here:
