  3. I first met Shari when I was a teacher for the Newton Schools. I got to know Shari better when she would fill in at the Rec Center (I teach water aerobics). I never saw Shari without a smile on her face. She loved to visit and laugh! I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you have some comfort in knowing that she made the most of the time she was given and she blessed others by sharing her enthusiasm with everyone she met!
