Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Milt & Family: I am saddened by Sharon's passing, which I just read in the Atlanta Jewish Times, dated July 31st. Sharon was a dear colleague during our real estate days. She and I shared many a good laugh at some experiences we had while checking-out open houses for clients. Milt, I was happy to meet you over lunch many summers ago when friends and I were vacationing at Litchfield. How I shall miss Sharon! I extend to you and your loved ones my heartfelt condolences. May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

In Sympathy,

Keith Nash

Sharon has shared the light of her bright, generous, creative, whimsical spirit with us around our various bridge tables for nearly two decades. We have basked in her insights, her steadfast determination, her wonderful sense of humor, and her kindness. Our days are so much dimmer without her.
