Obit for Dame Cicely Saunders, Founder of Modern Hospice Movement

From the Daily Telegraph (London), July 15, 2005:

DAME CICELY SAUNDERS, who died yesterday aged 87, was regarded as the mother of the modern hospice movement; at St. Christopher's Hospice, Sydenham, south London, founded in 1967, she charted new approaches in techniques for treatment of the terminally ill, based on her Christian belief that no human life, no matter how wretched, should be denied dignity and love.

The full obituary is here (may require free registration).  Other obituaries may be found on websites of the London Times, the Daily Scotsman, and the BBC.  The LA Times syndicate has a brief note that's been picked up by a few US newspapers' websites; nothing yet from other major national papers on this side of the pond.  [tm]
