Letter: Dr. Govan should not leave

I am pleased to see that Doctor Govan will continue practicing medicine in Kingman.

Americans not exposed to other cultures often do not understand that an arm placed around one's shoulder, or a hug, is not always a sexual gesture. I will have no problem using Dr. Govan's medical expertise and healing talents should I need them. Kingman has the good fortune to have an excellent medical center and medical community of which Dr. Govan is an outstanding member.

It would be Kingman's loss should Dr. Govan leave for any reason.

And to those nurses and doctors who put their hand on my arm, or their arm around my shoulder when I need it most, thank you for your humanity.

Sometimes that was what I needed most.
