Kenny, Rebecca & family; Karen, Fred & Mark, you know how much I loved my special friend since '79, as I shared with you at the memorial service when Brenda read my eulogy. My continued thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. I don't think I'll ever have another special friend like Sharon. She was so unique -- all the qualifies of a true friend. I miss her very much and her memories will be forever embeddied in my heart. God bless you!

I will miss my good camping and dancing friend, and long time confidant that Sharon was to me. She was "Good to the Bone" as the saying goes. I am glad you regard me as friend and that we may continue to keep in touch with each others' lives.
