  3. Dear Family of Mr Rinns,

    I was Mr Rinns’ Doctor in Riverdale for many years. I liked him a lot and we had a congenial relationship. He was a smart, sensible, pleasant person and an excellent
    patient. We had much in common including our age and country of origin. You have my deep sympathy on his demise.
