Mark and family, I am so sad to hear of your Dad's passing. I so enjoyed his visits with me at the office and missed seeing him this past year. I am glad his suffering is over and he is reunited with your lovely mom who I know he missed so much. Prayers for you and the family.

It was my good fortune to be a partner of Dr. Bargeron for twenty years. A more noble, intelligent man (or, physician), I have never met. I will miss “Gene” so much ! Every young physician should have the great opportunity as I had of working with Gene Bargeron !
