    I very much enjoyed your thoughtful and touching article regarding James Roberts, MD. (“James R. Roberts, MD, a Titan of Emergency Medicine.” EMN. 2022;44[9]:1; https://bityl.co/ESoi.) Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Roberts, but I was greatly saddened to hear the news of his passing. I very much enjoyed his many articles in EMN over the past several decades. They were always so clear, concise, and informative. (I agree, the urine dipstick testing column was probably my favorite!)

    It would be wonderful to somehow compile all or at least most of his articles into a single source, perhaps a pamphlet or a book, for one to refer to. (I have several piles of EMN from the past, but this is getting somewhat unwieldy.)

    Please keep EMN going strong, as I'm sure you will.

    Editor's Note: Thank you for your kind words. We are all missing him, but hopefully it will help a little to know that you can read his past articles going back to 2001 on our website at http://bit.ly/EMN-InFocus.
