So sorry to hear of Jamie's passing it seems like just yesterday I would see him and his brothers over my fence in deveaux,swimming in their pool. My daughters became good friends with him as the years passed and when I heard how successful he had become and the field he choose to devote his life to I said what a remarkable young man he had become and how proud his parents must be of him.

We are sorry for the loss of Dr. Mezhir. We send our sympathies to his family and to his community. He was the good doctor for our nephew who was battling cancer at the same time. He will be greatly missed.
