Every person who has been blessed with spending time with David walked away a better human. David touched the lives of so many through his career in medicine, as well as outside of his professional life. In his final years, David had a tremendous passion for hospice and end-of-life care. He was incredibly proud to serve as the Medical Director for Northern Light Home Care and Hospice, skillfully offering comfort to patients and families during their most difficult days. As a consulting physician, David ensured that the impact of his expertise spread well beyond his individual practice, welcoming phone calls day or night to other healthcare providers needing guidance in his field.
In closing, a few final statements frequently expressed by the wise Dr. David Jones:
“It is okay to be scared.”
“Do not be overly hard on yourself.”
“Listen to what your heart is telling you.”
Trust your judgment.”
And last but not least,
“The fish only start biting around 1:00 pm”.
Rest easy, my dear friend.
