I don't mean to make light of the subject matter when I say I'm a rookie when it comes to death. But I come from a small family, and one that's stayed pretty healthy for the first 28 years of my life.

I was told you'd never forget the first patient that slipped away from this life, and after my experience yesterday, I would have to say I'd agree.
