Not sure what to say?

I was a patient of Dr. Orfield's almost 20 years ago when i was at Harvard law School- she literally changed my entire approach to health. She was amazing: kind, intelligent, thoughtful, someone who lived life to the fullest and shared it with others. I will never forget her. May she rest in peace.

God Bless and my prayers are with you.
