It is with great sadness that I share my condolences to the family of Dr. David Ashbach. Dr. Ashbach will be greatly missed by his colleagues, patients and friends. Dr. Ashbach advocated for me when I applied for the privilege to see patients at Methodist Hospital and I will be forever grateful for his support. He was always a welcome presence. Sir, rest in peace.
