This week I heard that my main doctor’s assistant doctor, Dr. Widelitz, died. I was very sad when I found out about this. I will miss him very much and I hope he rests peacefully.
He treated all those sick kids for almost 40 years and made the sun shine even brighter when he smiled and told them that everything was going to be alright.
He was an amazing doctor and everyone in the office enjoyed having him around, and I saw him earlier this summer. Now I won’t ever see him again. It won’t be the same without him for me or any of us who knew Dr. Widelitz, but we can still remember him, honor him and keep him in our hearts forever.
My name is Ben Zelas, I’m 12 years old, and I will remember Dr.Widelitz for the rest of my life.
Ben Zelas is a Belmont Shore student and patient of Dr. Robert Kaplan, who was seen nearly as often by partner J who passed away at age 66.
