Local medical pioneered laid to rest

HOUSTON Dr. Ralph Feigin, the popular pediatrician many said was the best in the world, was honored today by the people who loved him.

Employees and medical staff stood outside Texas Children's Hospital, holding red carnations and watching as the car carrying Dr. Feigin's body drove past. Others stood outside Baylor College of Medicine, also carrying carnations.

Mourners at Congregation Beth Israel where Dr. Feigin was eulogized filled the building. An estimated 1,500 people attended the service, which was an uplifting remembrance of his life. His children recalled that their father was a man who seemed to do everything – research and teach doctors, and who always remained the compassionate doctor and kind father.
