This morning we learned of the death of our friend Sharron. She and Tony had been seatmates of ours at the Michigan Stadium for many, many years. She had thought that she was cured of cancer, but it insidiously returned, and made her life miserable at the end. She deserved better. She and Tony were inveterate Michigan fans, and it was a delight to have known them. She's gone too soon.
