"?Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul. ? What beautiful words by Plato. I will always remember my aunts love for music ,and how giving she was."

"Sharon ... my heart also hurts to write this. As you are/were such a love. Our world needs you. As a woman who gives/gave such light to others, we need you. We miss you. And will continue to miss Sharon, as she gives/gave so generously of the love and joy that she had in abundance. Of course she was human, yet, she made you feel that you were the only one who mattered when you were with her. This is such a rare quality in someone. I am blessed to have known Sharon, to call her my friend. In her memory...I will try to pass along light & joy: like Sharon did. My love to all who grieve with me, and especially to Stephanie and Robert. Peace be with you."
