Florida’s Attorney General is remembering former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, who passed away Monday.

In a statement, Pam Bondi—Florida’s first female Attorney General—had some kind words for Janet Reno, the first female U.S. Attorney General.

Calling her a great prosecutor, Bondi also praised Reno for her willingness to serve Floridians, adding that Reno deserved her induction into Florida Women’s Hall of Fame.

Reno—who served as U.S. Attorney General under former President Bill Clinton—died at her Miami home Monday from Parkinson’s disease. She was 78.
