Donna and Christy, I was so saddened to hear of Sharon's passing. Sharon and I were friends from our junor high school years and had many fun times. I hadn't seen her for about 4 or 5 years, but whenever we would run into each other, we would always stop and talk a while Praying that God will comfort her family. Sharon will be missed. May she Rest in Peace.
