    Prosecutors are expected to read a transcript of the 2005 testimony, saving for the very end of their case Cosby's own words about using the 1970s party drug "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'"

 FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX)--  Longtime employees and patients at Dr. Michael Huber's Fort Pierce dental office were grieving Tuesday with a black wreath on the front door.

"It's been very difficult for us to tell the patients 'I'm sorry but Dr. Huber and his children have perished in a plane accident.' They are all very upset," Office Manager Jenny Heller said.

Dr. Hubert and his daughters Abby and Tess were killed when their Cessna went down in Jacksonville on Sunday.

Huber was flying his older daughter back to college at the University of North Florida.

Heller has worked for Dr. Huber for thirty years and started out with him when he became a dentist.

He is more like a family member to her than a boss.

"It is hard to be here because I still see him in every room. You walk by and you can see him laugh. You can see him talking with the patients," Heller said.

Heller babysat Dr. Huber's daughters when they were young. She says they were inseparable and their Dad was always by their side.

"I think that the three of them going together may have been a blessing. They would not survive without each other. It would be like breaking off a part of your body or something," Heller said.

Patients came to the office on Tuesday to leave flowers and grieve with the staff.

"He was such a great person. He was smiling all the time and making jokes and whistling. We're all going to miss him a lot," longtime patient Eunice Lewis said.

Friends say Huber has been flying for over a decade and made the flight to Jacksonville hundreds of times.

The NTSB is investigating the cause of the crash Sunday night.

As for Dr. Huber's dental practice, staff says nearby dentists have been filling in to help with emergencies. They say they still aren't sure who will take over the practice permanently.
