"The only thing you take with you when you are gone is what you leave behind." This quote, attributed to John Alston of 18th century England, serves notice to a community that is mourning the passing of one of its beloved physicians. Dr. Brian Sudderth died unexpectedly Monday from an aortic dissection. He was 56.
As word of Sudderth's passing spread throughout Saline County, words of grief and thanks from patients and friends painted a picture of a man who, as one friend said, "was more than a doctor."
