Not sure what to say?

I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciplesif you have love among yourselves. My condolences.

Gene was one of the few professors that had a profound effect on me when I was a student at U-Mass Boston. Resistance, Rebellion and Revolution. I still have the copy of his work that he gave all of us in the class. I was honored to remain friends with him for many years. Truly a person for the ages. My sympathies.

Our sincere condolences to the Sharp family, friends and colleagues. He led a life that as only a minority of humankind can claim, has impacted the majority. May you be comforted by warm memories of good times shared and the hope of Gene's hearing the command that the greatest man who ever lived gave to his good friend Lazarus: 'Lazarus, come out!' Jn 11:43,44

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your love one.

May 'God' give the SHARP FAMILY peace during this most difficult time. -Isaiah 9:7

I am sorry for your loss.
