"Dr. Veltman was such a gentle and kind soul. I , as well as my brothers Dave and Mike, had him as our Dr. while growing up. Was truly blessed that he continued long enough for our children Jason and Andrea to have him as well. Our thoughts and prayers are flowing for your family. The Heavens are blessed with another Angel. Diane (Bogucki) Turney"

"I had the honor of knowing Dr. Veltman as a nurse and a mom of three boys. I worked with him caring for children in the hospital and in the G.R.A.P.E program where I saw his quiet kindness and compassion for children and their parents. My deepest sympathy to his family."
