    Grief never ends…but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor lack of faith…it is the price of love.

    My sincere condolences on the loss of such a beautiful woman. I have fond memories going back 45 years of lovely, warm dinners at Winkler’s with both of you, Briggs and Paula, and Natalie and Marty. You made our move to RI so much nicer. May Sharon RIP and you gain strength from your memories of her.
