Monroe Carell, Jr. Dies


A couple of weeks ago, I posted photos of the Monroe Carell, Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University.  (Click here for the first post.)  The window in today's photo is from the hospital's chapel.

Over the weekend, Carell passed away from cancer.  Carell, who headed Central Parking, was a philanthropist who backed several causes.  I understand that he helped raise more than $75 MILLION to build Children's Hospital.  More importantly, he cared about the children there.  You can read more about him here.

The Nashville community (as well as the world community) has lost a good friend.

It is a sad day! Hopefully, his work will continue with others taking over the helm.

The Children's Hospital is a great legacy to a fine human being. The stained glass window is beautiful.

It's sad to lose great people, but hopefully others have learned from his kindness and generosity and will follow in his footsteps.
