    My older sister, Sharon, and I were some 20 months apart in age, but we were only one grade level apart until we graduated from high school. We walked and later drove back and forth to school together every day. I was known to many of our teachers and...  more

    I will always remember you with a smile... The fun we always had with you. The crazy trips. The expert advice on the "finer" things in life -- expensive sunglasses, good wine, Montblanc pens. Your independent spirit inspired me and gave me...  more

    I keep oscillating between moments of joy and grief. I never got to come see you at your new place, or show you pictures of mine. I had planned to come see you the day you passed, but I was too late.

    But I remember how much I loved swim days and...  more

    It’s very hard to put into words the feelings and experiences of a lifetime. My hard to put into words. Bold comes first, I think, strong certainly; smart is an understatement. Fun comes to mind often when I think of her-even if sometimes...  more

    On September 20, I got the first of my last voicemails from my Aunt Sharon. The first said, “Happy Rosh Hashanah! I’m shouting it to you! Ruth Bader Ginsberg died… what are we gonna do?” The second was, I think, her fighting with Alexa, and the...  more
