Dear God, Thank you for sharing "Frosty" with me. He and Betty were my loving adoptive mom and dad while I was living in San Antonio. His family said it best, that "we will miss him but, will also celebrate a life lived fully." Frosty surely is a "good and faithful servant." I will forever remember his love and hugs! Betty, and the rest of Frosty's family, I love you guys! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Frosty took care of all the Creamer Clan, the Mayo Clan, and the Bowen Creamer Clan, we owe you all a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid. Frosty took care of us and my sweet father took care of you - a faithful pledge between two generous and kind men of a generation that has not been equaled. Let our children know of the wisdom,humor, and love these men and women had for one another. I know my

I remember the first time I met Uncle Frosty at Grandmama Gant's funeral. He saw our baby Anna and immediately said she was one of his "blue" babies. She had a blue vein showing on her face and he picked up on that immediately. He "loved her up" during our time together.

Our family had the joy of visiting Uncle Frosty and Aunt Betty during the summer of 2004. Those memories are some of our favorite ever! We loved being at

Dr. Frosty taught me a valuable lesson about being a doctor. More than 30 years ago, when I was first in practice, I took my two young daughters to see him for a "well baby" exam. I apologized to him for taking up his time and said that I knew he had more important patients to see. His response was, "Oh, these are the fun patients to see, but they don't really need me. It is the angry, upset, hostile,

Dr. Frosty was my sons' first pediatrician. He taught me the boys' mother so much about parenting. He reminded me that teaching them with firm and loving discipline was mandatory. I'll remember him for teaching me to teach my sons to say "No thank you, I don't prefer it" at the table in favor of "YUCK". That sounds trivial, but my son's grew up with that wise doctrine. Dr. Frosty was a special and loving doctor. I'll remember his office with all those DOC Dwarves!!! May God bless and protect Dr. Frosty's living relatives!

Dearest Smith Family,

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. I regret I will be unable to attend the services, but wish to share some of my fondest memories.

Dr. Smith was my pediatrician and truly saved my life before the age of two. I understand he was quite proud of the diagnosis he made. I am told he walked on air that day!

As I entered my teen years, he counseled me through the untimely
