Steve and I were close friends as interns at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. We continued to correspond while he was in Viet Nam and I was in Chicago for postgraduate training. He was a good man as well as an excellent and caring physician. I will always remember spending Easter weekend with him and his family in Mt Morris, Illinois. Steve, may you rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy to all the membes of Dr. Jewett's family. He took good care of many people including my children and self. It was always a good conversation since he had many interests along with the medical reason we would be in the office for. May the many good memories and knowledge of the people he helped grant much comfort to you during this time.
