Sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. I was a 1st Cousin to Sharon as her Father and My Mother Ethel McCormick Marshall were brother and sister. Sharon was 4 years older than me but remember her from school and she was very good in taking dance. Growing up she lived just 2 miles straight across the fields from us. It has been many years since I have seen David or Janine since their McCormick Grandparents passed away.

Sending our Sympathy to all of you.
