    Eric and Craig, so sorry I can not be with you Wednesday. I teach a class at that hour and don’t have a substitute. Know that your Mom was a great friend from our days at Met Life. I had no idea that she was so sick. I will hold you in my prayers. Peace.

    Craig, and all of Sharron’s family,
    I planned to be at the visitation today, but due to the stormy weather, I opted not to get out. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. I have known Sharron most of our lives, and have always thought of her as a good and caring person. May God be with you now and always.
