    My sincere condolences to Sharon’s family. Sharon and I were classmates in the Pleasant Hill Schools. She was a delight to spend time with; such a nice gal. We were able to reconnect through Facebook and kept in touch that way, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.

    Sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing. God Rest her Soul. She was a friend, classmate and a joy to be around, albeit a very quiet, usually, individual.
