Glenn, Mekell, Amy, Casey and all the grandchildren–

I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with your family when we were pretty much just kids, and up through the years to have our own children play together. Vivian still remembers the silly string and hay-rides at the Stowe’s Halloween.

Sharon was one of a kind. So funny, sharp in her observations and illustrative with her words. I have thought of her regularly all these years, laughing to myself about what I thought she might say about this-or-that. It was a real treat to know her.

We are all so sorry for your loss.

Rest in peace, Sharon, and say hi to Buddy and Ritchie for me.
