    Dr. Evans has been my doctor since 1994.  He was very sensitive and compassionate.  Dr. Evans saved my life by using extraordinary skills to make an early diagnosis and support me throughout treatment.  He was always there to serve my needs.  I will be forever grateful.  I am so sorry to see him go.

    I just learned of the good Doctor's passing. So shocked and saddened. I've been a patient for many years and never thought he'd be gone just like that. He was a wonderful doctor and person and I'm sure he'll be missed by all who knew him.

    Bill and I were close friends during the middle '70s. I met Bill in 1977 and developed a close relationship with him. He was a truly wonderful person to know as a close friend. His death comes as a complete shock to me.  I enjoyed his company and spent  a lot of time with Bill. So sad to read that he is gone. I will remember him  for all of the wonderful times that we spent together.  Richard
