The Passing of my Wife, Mary Berman

It's with a heavy heart and much sadness I want to let my friends know that my wife Mary passed away Friday morning peacefully in her sleep. She had been dealing with chronic pain for years and she's finally at rest. We would have been married 34 years next month and loved each other very much, no less now than we did at the beginning of our relationship. We met while I was doing the Three Rivers Art Festival in Pittsburgh and it was love at first sight. I still remember her in the long purple dress she was wearing that day, sitting on the wall across from my booth by what was then the Hilton. She bought a small print from me in order to give me a check that had her phone number on it, hoping I would call her. As it turned out she had second thoughts and sent a girlfriend back with the print to retrieve her check. Because I was just as taken with her, I told her girlfriend she would have to come back in person for her check. We went out for the first time the next day and were married four months later.
