Sharon Goldstein Tipaldi’s Passing

We were so sad tonight to hear that Sharon Goldstein Tipaldi, an active member of our group passed away over the weekend. Gregg has passed on the following information:
“She had a massive heart attack out of nowhere at dinner Saturday night in Blue Ridge Georgia. We rented a cabin for the weekend before her shoulder surgery on Tuesday. It was quick and painless and I’m happy for that. And there’s not much anyone can do for me, I just lost the love of my life in the span of five minutes. Thank you for the thoughts.”
