Dear Sharon, I am forever grateful to you and Mike for the time we spent together at the University of Michigan. I will never forget. I also will never forget the special "cousins" time we had in Lexington when the Doty family arrived. Old pictures still exist in boxes somewhere, but the memories are always with me. Peace be with you and your family.
