(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. Barbi and Kevin wanted something special for their doctor. Barbi has kindly given her permission for her poem and story to be published)


My Saintly Doctor


What is your name: Barbi and Kevin Gyda

Who do you want the poem written for: Dr. Richard Krauss

Why do you want the poem written: We would like to thank Dr. Krauss for everything he has done for us.  He has been through thick and thin with us for many years.  He is probably the most caring and considerate doctor that I have ever met.  He genuinely cares for his patients and his staff.

What are the key messages you would like to send: A VERY, VERY heartfelt thank you.

Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you would like to share: I have to begin by telling you a little about our story.  I have gone to Dr. Krauss for many years now.  Over 6 years ago I became pregnant with twin girls.  Dr. Krauss kept a close eye on me and made sure that I was well taken care of.  At about 18 weeks we found out that our twins had twin to twin transfusion syndrome (a condition where the twins share a placenta and one twin gets more blood, oxygen, and nutrients than the other).  Dr. Krauss had us go to various specialists but also made sure that he still took very good care of us.  At around 22 1/2 weeks into the pregnancy, one of our girls died and that sent me into labor.  Dr. Krauss made sure that he was there for the delivery of our twins.  Dr. Krauss was so very caring throughout everything.  He shed tears with us and was clearly so very upset.  I don't think I have ever seen a doctor so genuinely concerned and caring (and I happen to be an RN).  After everything had passed, I had miscarried again (a year after we lost the twins).  My husband and I had tried getting pregnant again...to no avail.  Then I became pregnant again in about a year.  I miscarried that baby too.  Dr. Krauss was devastated along with us.  He continued to care so much about us.  After about two years (and visits and talks with Dr. Krauss) I had finally given up all hope that I would ever have any more children.  Dr. Krauss told me not to give up, but as I told him, I had to for my sanity's sake.  I ended up becoming pregnant again and Dr. Krauss was there right by my side.  He made sure that we took every precaution not to lose this pregnancy and watched me very closely.  Nine months later, I delivered a very beautiful, healthy baby boy (Gary).  He was born on the 4th of July 2002.  Although Dr. Krauss was not on call that day, he came in to deliver our son.  Dr. Krauss had out of town family and friends over for the holiday festivities...but that didn't stop him from going to the hospital and staying there for several hours.  Once again, Dr. Krauss came through...this time to share tears of joy.
That isn't the end of our story.  Less than two years later, I became pregnant again.  Once again, Dr. Krauss took every precaution to take care that I would not miscarry.  This time though, I had many complications.  I ended up with severe toxemia.  Dr. Krauss made sure he took very good care of me.  I ended up in the hospital and had to deliver the baby 5 1/2 weeks early.  Even though Dr. Krauss had office appointments, he made sure he came in bright and early to deliver the baby himself.  We had another beautiful and healthy baby...this time a girl (Christina), on June 16th 2004.  Again, Dr. Krauss was able to share tears of joy with us. 
After the surgery, I ended up being very sick.  Dr. Krauss was not able to be in the hospital every day, but he certainly made sure that he called the nurses to find out how I was doing.  He also stopped by after his office hours to visit with me and make sure that all was going well.  The one day that he was on call, I happened to become very ill and he stayed right by my side. 
I want to be able to show Dr. Krauss how much he is appreciated by us, how thankful we (I) am to have him as my physician. 
Dr. Krauss goes beyond his call of duty as far as taking care of his patients.  Although I would love to think that I am extra special...I know that he genuinely cares for all of his patients.  This is why he has been named (several times) Top Doc by Philadelphia Magazine.  I know that I will continue to vote for him.

Do you have any other comments or thoughts: I really don't know how to thank Dr. Krauss enough...I really would like to show our deep appreciation for him.  I was originally going to get him a tie or gift basket, but then came across your site.  I'm so happy that I did.  I love the idea that this gift will be so very original.

What style of poem would you prefer (happy, sad, romantic etc.): heart warming...touching...ok...let's say a little tear jerking   :)

Please choose which package you would prefer: Deluxe

Do you have any last comments or thoughts: Thank you so much for offering this type of service.  If you have any questions or need to know more detail about anything, please don't hesitate to email me.  I will be more than happy to provide you with more details if needed.

My Saintly Doctor
Some tides bring forth life,
and then other tides can take that life away,
then there are people who can walk on water,
and that line leaves so very much to say:
You see, Dr. Krauss, you truly are a miracle worker,
you have sheer magic in them there hands,
you have a heart that's too big for your chest,
you have an ear that gently understands.
But most importantly, and this is so apparent,
you can see that you genuinely care,
and when we think of all the saints in this world,
we think of you, just standing there.
You've been with us through it all,
and some of the lows were very low,
but it was your support and belief that got us through,
oh yes, there's a few other things that you should know.
When we lost the twins our dreams expired,
everything we'd hoped for, was suddenly gone,
for us, the world seemed so much darker,
there was no warmth where the sun had shone.
But life carried on (as it always does),
and we tried and then we tried again,
and as you know, we cried together,
for my sanity, I didn't want any more pain.
But you told me not to give up,
and that was just an inspirational thought,
because I know we wouldn't have what we have today,
they wouldn't have happened without your unwavering support.
You watched me very closely with Gary,
and when push come to shove, you were by my side,
and we know we couldn't have picked a finer doctor,
we know we couldn't - even if we'd tried.
And we cried tears of joy that day,
we'll never forget them streaming down your face,
and that could have been the end of this story,
but gladly, there was another time and another place.
Because less than two years later,
Christina wouldn't wait to land on this planet Earth,
and once again, you put everything else aside,
and we discovered what a saintly doctor is truly worth.
So many times, you've gone beyond the call of duty,
that's why you're the Top Doc in the Philadelphia Magazine,
your light is beautiful, it's brilliant, truly magnificent,
you're one of the finest doctors this world's ever seen.
And if your magnificence was a picture,
well, it would have been so difficult to paint,
how on Earth can we thank you for Gary and Christina,
how on Earth do you say: "Thank you, saint"?
