As we cousins grew up and moved away from Minnesota I was not able to see and visit with Sharran as often as I would liked to but on every occasion that I did it was always such a fun time. Her smile would light up the room and just being around her was so much fun. I will miss her forever and cherish my wonderful memories of her. I know I will meet up with you, my family and all other aunts, uncles and cousins some day.

Love you forever,

Susan and Mel Read
