Walter Lind, long time Week 3 camper, passed away at home on September 21 after a too short, relentless battle with pancreatic cancer. His service was held September 28 at the First Church of Belmont, Unitarian Universalist, where he and his wife Kathy were long-time members. Thanks so much for the large outpouring of support from his many Three Mile friends. Walter will be fondly remembered for his grace and good humor, his daily swim around the island, his quick wit and wacky skits, and for his commitment to strong friendships that he shared with so many. The family requests that donations in lieu of flowers be made to their church, 404 Concord Ave, Belmont, MA 02478.

With great sadness we report the death of Nicholas Sharp on August 17, 2007. Nick, age 17, was a camper for twelve years, coming each summer with his family from Maryland during Week 5. After struggling with mental illness for several years, Nick took his own life. He was curious by nature and, as his family shared, was ready to explore the next plane.
Nick was a lover of the natural world with passions for birding, photography, boating, and archery. As a trumpet player, Nick often played the bugle for the camp and his contributions to the community will be remembered with fondness.
He was a thoughtful and kindhearted individual and his life was a gift to all who knew him. His death is a great loss to the Three Mile Island community.
Nick is survived by his mother, Sherry Sharp, sisters Natalie and Nina Sharp, father Greg Sharp, and grandfather Dave Sharp.
Condolences may be sent to the Sharp Family:
