Dr. and Mrs. Hofman from my wedding when they won the anniversary dance. They were the couple who had been married the longest! Erin Bedows (DeFrancisco)

Dr. Hofman was my mother’s first boss after she graduated from dental school. I have know him since I was born. He was always such a kind and wonderful person. I remember going into his office when I was younger getting my teeth worked on. He was always making a joke to make me feel more confortable since he knew I didn’t like having my teeth worked on. He will be greatly missed!
