Monday, July 22, 2013 A Great Woman Passes from Life

Yesterday, a wonderful, unforgettable woman and my personal hero, Rosalie Wahl, passed away.  Rosalie gave so much to our society and to everyone she met as she lived her life -- the most unselfish, kind, and giving person I have known in my life.  One individual I spoke to as I was researching for our film said that Rosalie was "the nearest person to God that I have ever met."  Last night, as I drove home, a full moon rose in the east; and a thought came to me that the heavens were trying to make up for the loss of that shining light that Rosalie Wahl had been to our troubled world.
