I was one of the many standing shoulder to shoulder in the back of the church yesterday. Such an amazing tribute to a really good guy. I knew Brett as a client and a friend. He was one of my all time favorite clients.

I provided some of the medical devices he used in the operating room and I always enjoyed making the trip to Ft Wayne to work with Dr Gemlick. In my 35 years in this field, I've

Dr.Gemlick did my knee surgery and my friend's shoulder.
He was so kind and empathetic as a doctor. He listened very well when you were sitting in his office. I remember showing him the progress on my knee and he joked with me and made me feel good about my progress. I pray for his wife and children and ask that God's loving arms hold each close forever. Prayers and love to his One family, colleagues and trusted friends.

Dr.Gemlick was an outstanding surgeon. He was number 1 in my book. One of my former students told me a year ago
that Dr.Gemlick was his inspiration to become an orthopedic surgeon someday. I am totally heartbroken for this absolutely devastating loss to our community. I am so sorry and I pray for his family and children that you will carry your father with you forever in your hearts.

Not much else can be said that hasnt already been said. I was a patient and was hoping for him to replace my knee next year. I am struggling with the loss. I had known him for over 10 years. He was always funny, kind, caring, and thoughtful with everyone he met. I truly miss him. May his co workers, former patients, and his family find peace and comfort in the following months ahead.

My deepest sympathies to Dr Gemlicks family but also to his ONE family too. He was my surgeon three years ago when I tore my hamstring off the bone. He made the comment that he only did one or two of these a year. I then told him he needed to give me a gold medal for doing so. Comfort and peace to his family.

I am a patient of Dr Gemlicks. I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to his wife and children and also his work family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am devastated as well. Dr did a shoulder replacement in May of 18 and a knee replacement in Dec of 18 for me. He always had a smile on his face and a bounce in his step. He was just an all round great Dr and person. I
