Sad news: Dr. Viola Frymann DO passed away


Dear Members, Colleagues, Friends ...

As you surely know Dr. Viola Frymann DO passed away last Saturday.
Dr. Viola Frymann opened a way which strongly marked the professional path of many of us. She was a pioneer... her whole life has been dedicated to improving the lives of children and their families. The memory of her gentleness, her rigor, her determination and her competence will always remain a great example.
She taught us a lot, often taking responsibility that few others would take.
We are sure that nothing will be lost, that her efforts will remain well imprinted in our minds and that we will have the ability to develop her path with equal dedication and competence. She has left us a legacy, and that is an important legacy: to believe in what she believed in, and this was the power of love, the power of healing, the power of Osteopathy.

We are confident that she will continue to watch over us, always guiding our minds and our hands..

Goodbye Viola.
