AbstractWelcome back to FMM and welcome to 2024. Hoping this will be a very reflective year for you. I want to start the year with an important piece from Anita Kostecki, who is a graduate of the Family Medicine Residency (FHCW) and a long-time faculty member who provides part time care at EMK. She has been thinking more about the passing of our colleague Jeff Satnick. She has captured her thoughts here on what he meant to her and her family, and also what he meant to our department, community and his patients. I am so glad she has done this. A void has occurred with his passing. I simply loved seeing him at medical gatherings for all that he stood for and the joy he brought to conversations I would have with him. However, this is Anita's reflection, and I won't distract. She included these thoughts in her email to me: [I wrote this reflection] both on my personal and family's responses to Jeff's passing as well as an attempt to highlight and honor the many unique and wonderful aspects of his life. I was hoping by sharing my own experience of grief, that others may connect it to losses they have experienced and find it helpful in some way as they go forward in their lives as best they can after the death of a beloved friend or family member.
