I remember Sharon fondly and will never forget when my Mother brought her to visit us in Rochester, New York. She was a happy young girl and full of life. I have missed her over the years and hate losing a first cousin. I also remember how happy she was at Skyler and Jessica’s wedding! God be with you Skyler. Jessica and Robin and know she is with God! Love you all, Judi

In the gentle embrace of the wind, our cherished second cousin, a fusion of American Indian heritage and English immigrant roots, has embarked on a new journey. The weight of sorrow settled upon my heart when the news reached me and as I grappled with the waves of emotion, a solitary black crow alighted by my side, a silent companion in my grief. In its presence, I sent my heartfelt prayers, a whispered farewell to a kindred soul. In that fleeting moment, our spirits danced together, bridging the realms, as if in anticipation of our eventual reunion within the tapestry of our great family’s legacy. Shuwahshi . amen.
