On May 17, 2013, I lost a personal friend and my personal doctor. Joseph Paul Mudd was always my parent’s doctor for many years. Dr. Mudd was a man with great honor and was always very caring. Dr. Mudd was a father figure to me and I will never forget him. I was always in his best interest whenever he saw me through sickness or whatever the reason might have been. His staff that worked for him including many that have passed on was very dedicated while he practiced medicine. Dr. Mudd had his way and I did my best to make sure I followed his orders. My current doctor and I have talked on many office visits and he also agrees how good a man and father figure he really was. Dr. Mudd, you will always be in my heart, and my father said on many occasions you were one of the best and was a personal friend as well.
