I regret not doing this when I was working GYN -ONC many years ago. I hate that I forget such precious and meaningful moments. I feel like I could better honor the patients that we lost by remembering them. I have a few letters of thanks and read them every few years...

I don't do it every day, but record some of the more salient ones (for me personally, at least). Treasure those stories and moments
