A legend's quiet exit

I have so much to say about this, but can't begin to do it now...

Florence Wald has passed away. Florence was the 4th Dean of the Yale School of Nursing. Among other things she accomplished in her lifetime, she was the founder of Hospice in the United States.

I'm sure in her prime she had a lion's roar; but when I met her, she was in her late 80's and had shrunk to five feet.

I hope someday I make the time to write an essay about Florence, but trust me- it is a sad day that she is gone and the end of an era.
