This issue of RIMJ features a tribute to DR. STANLEY M. ARONSON, editor emeritus, who passed away January 28 at the age of 92. He was our friend, our inspiration, and words cannot capture our immense sorrow at his passing and our joy in the time we were privileged to spend with him. His final Lexicon in the issue is on the words of hospice, a fitting farewell, and a place where he spent his final hours.
