Sorry to hear about Sharon.When I was a Freshman in high school,Debbie,Brenda and I used to ride horses after school,Sharon is the one who gave me the love of horses.Then the next year she went away to College so we couldn’t ride any more.A very special time in my life,Sharon is now in heaven riding with Jesus.
To Sharon’s family and friends! Such fond memories of Sharon when I worked in food service at BC – always made us laugh and her tale of riding her horse into the house as a kid – still makes me laugh to think about it!! Would run into her also at the Mickey Mart and always friendly. Didn’t even hear that she was ill!! Take care all! AND! of course, we shared our first names too!
