Sharon Riff Ackerman- mother, sister, and grandmother!
Born 9/28/50- Passed on 1/1/2020 due to Parkinson’s disease. Sharon Riff Ackerman lived with Parkinson’s for decades, but it started to affect her daily activities in 2014. Up until then she was able to spend her favorite day of the week, Sunday, with us in the backyard, blowing bubbles with her grand kids, eating the best meals we could find, but only after a lively debate over where and what she wanted to eat. I miss those funny arguments.

On December 20, 2019, a week before mom passed…. I had the opportunity to play guitar with our incredible music therapy support. We played mom’s favorite song “Memory” from the Broadway show “Cat’s” which she brought me to when I was a child. By this point, she did not speak much and her health was declining but she was happy and clapped and said she loved it.
