Hello Beautiful Supporters of the Sharon Doc! 

Here is my long overdue update on the project. First off thank you all so much for supporting this project. Your support has allowed me to buy equipment, take time off work, and hire an editor to help me slog through all of the footage. 

And speaking of footage I'm still collecting photos and videos of Sharon as well as any art or other artifacts Sharon might have left behind. If you have anything you'd like to share that's already digitized then please just email me a copy ( Otherwise please mail me the media and I'll scan and digitize it myself. All material will of course be returned. 

My Address: 429 Hickory St, San Francisco, CA 94102

In other news I created a Facebook group to help me collect stories about Sharon as well as document major events in Sharon's life. Please join the group and invite anyone who knew Sharon to the group. In Facebook just search for "the story of sharon stern ostermayer" and the group should just pop up. I also created a Facebook profile for Sharon so I can chronologically organize all the stories and life events on a timeline.

Thank you again for all the help and support.
