"Beautiful People Do Not Just Happen"

I may have said an out loud "Oh, no!" as soon as I saw the "Death of Dr. Elisabeth..." I knew how the title would end.

If you haven't already heard of her, I highly recommend you pick up one of her books or check out her website. Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross significantly changed how dying patients are treated in hospitals. Her book, "On Death and Dying" changed me. That was the first book I read from the perspective of patients who are terminally ill. In fact, it is still one of the very best books on the subject.

Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross died in her home on the 24th at the age of 78. May she rest in peace knowing how much serenity of heart she has brought to so many, myself included.
