    Dearest Walt,
    I was just made aware of Sharons death by the Swades. Im the one whos father commited suicide, that used to always sit close to you and Sharon at the meetings. I will never forget her kindness and compassion that she gave to me in the short time we knew each other. We emailed some before her illness and those messages from her meant so much to me. I am so very sorry for your loss, please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
