As the world knows now, Arnold Palmer passed away. Below is what my wife, Cara, had to say. I think she summed it up perfectly.


During the coarse of the next few days you will hear about all the amazing achievements of Mr. Arnold Palmer. His golf career is LEGEND and his life is a testament to the American dream.

The Lord teaches us that all things good must be built on a solid foundation. Arnold Palmer’s Hospital for Children is the solid foundation that the Wyatt Whitney Hip & Orthopedic Institute is built. It was an exceptional honor to share a moment in time with Mr. Palmer (and even drank an Arnold Palmer iced tea with him). He was funny, patient and very kind to us. I will be FOREVER grateful for his philanthropy. Our work would not have been possible without his help.

“Good deeds” won’t get any of us into heaven, but they sure do make this world a better place to live. Thank you for your “good works” Mr. Palmer.
