With the Greatest Sadness - A Great Lady Passes
It is with the greatest regret and sadness that we write with the news of Sharon Battaglia’s passing. As some of you may know, our much beloved Mrs. B, wife of Couples Sans Souci's General Manager Pierre, has been bravely battling cancer for some time. Her health took a dramatic turn for the worse early this week and she was unable to recover her strength.
She passed on early this afternoon surrounded by her family and will be missed by every one of us who knew her. The family appreciates your continued support and prayers but would appreciate if you could resist the urge to reach out to them and instead give them an opportunity to grieve.
Our grateful hearts remember
Had you met Sharon or spent any time with her, you would have been blessed and enriched by her spirit and love for her family, friends, Sans Souci and Jamaica.
Sharon shared many special gifts with us. She helped us experience and appreciate the real Jamaica through her eyes: special kind-hearted people, breathtaking land and countryside, natural roller coaster hills, turns, curves and valleys, the bluest swimming hole imaginable, and the flavours, tastes, scents and smells of all things Jamaican....and, her love and passion for orchids.
Our sincerest condolences to Pierre, Alex and Christian. We will truly miss her. Sharon will forever be remembered by us both.
We will feel her spirit and see Sharon's glow everytime we see an orchid.
With thanks and praise,
Evan Hanycz and Karen Shack, Toronto, Canada
