In loving memory-- Sheila Kaplan Davis 1954-2014

March 4, 2014 

Sunrise 6:38 AM. San Francisco

My grandmother lived above her grandmother’s store when they were both raising their children. Her mother and my mother would get on the phone after dinner and keep each other company the rest of the evening until one of them fell asleep. Sheila and I were born within 3 months of one another (she was younger as she would want everyone to know). We got into a lot of trouble together in High School and then saw one another sporadically over the years. I always felt close to Sheila and took our special connection for granted.

I found out last night that she passed away after a long illness I knew nothing about.

It was with great sadness and regret that I observed the sunrise this morning and dedicate this moment to my friend’s memory. Goodbye Sheila. This world is a poorer place without you in it.
