Sharon Loved the San Francisco Giants

She was unexcelled as a friend. She always stayed in contact. Remarkable. Sharon was a person who never took the "hard knocks" of life personally. She never held grudges against others and was never resentful. She went out of her way to help others, even those who had not treated her the best. A very special person, one in a million, probably one in a hundred million who treated others better than the others treated her. All unconditional. Always unconditional.

We love you and miss you Sharon. God Bless you on your journey.

Grief and Closure
jda originally posted 08/26/2013

I have never particularly liked the word, “closure,” because it implies that this is it, nothing else to be done, finished, next case. We know, of course, that grief works in different ways, for different ones. However, yesterday(Sunday April 26,2013), I experienced a type of closure that was “right on.”

It was a celebration of our good friend, Sharon Meitrott's life. She died a year ago. At that time, we had a wonderful celebration of who she was. In this case the husband had a ceremony of placing the ashes in this “see through” case. Hard to describe but it really was sweet. The casual way that we watched and celebrated who she was. When I think of ashes, I think of spreading them somewhere. This was different and I think for those present, a celebration. A closure.
