Some of the key elements of the sculpture are:
The heart made out of a shoe stretcher and some of his surgery tools represents his career as a Cardiovascular Surgeon.
A dog on a leash represents his love for golden retrievers.
The Michigan Patch, trumpet and photo reflect upon his time as a member of the Michigan State Band.
