Sharon Robinson

Post by HelenD » Sun Nov 01, 2015 12:46 pm

I can't believe that there is only one small mention of Sharon's tragic loss of her husband on the Forum (under Related Artists).

The reason why Sharon's tour has been cancelled is because her husband has died suddenly.

With sincere condolences to Sharon and her family.

OMG, I had no idea, Helen. That's awful, tragic news.
Thank you for bringing it here where it belongs. My heart is with Sharon and their son, and with Leonard, as well. He's the godfather of their son, so he's been close to all of them, and it's a loss for him, as well.

Sending you and Michael lots of strength and love at this most difficult time Sharon.
I met Greg after your concert at Hotel Cafe in LA last year and he was so sweet and kind. I introduced myself as I wanted to ask if you were coming out to sign your book and he said "Oh are you Mutti from the forum?". I was so surprised and touched. He had remembered a review I had written after seeing you in San Francisco.
I am so sorry for your loss Sharon.
Take good care of yourself.
Big hug

Dear Sharon, I met you in Townsville. My deepest sympathies are with you.
My mother passed away exactly a year ago on 31st October and I feel your pain.

There is a very happy family photo that I noticed on Arlene's Leonard Cohen Scrapbook, which I have linked to here.

I spoke to Michael Gold (Greg Gold & Sharon's son) after Sharon's show in Dublin earlier this year. He was a very talented, genuinely friendly, polite and tolerant (of me and my camera) young man - a real credit to his parents. I was looking forward to seeing Sharon again next weekend, but this news puts everything in perspective. My sympathies.

At first there was no word as to why her tour had been cancelled, then came the very sad news about her husband. My thought are with Sharon and her family at this very sad time.

I notice there are hundreds of condolences on sharon's facebook page.
I'm sure that Jarkko's direct email conveys the love of the whole forum
