WWII Nurse in famous "Kiss" photo dies at 91

The end of an era, then and now. What an iconic moment this famous picture captured. It was snapped 15 years before I was born, but it's been an image I've seen all my life.

Edith Shain was a slender, leggy 26-year old nurse on V-J Day 1945. She died today at age 91. May she rest in peace.
