High School Best Bud

I considered Sharon one of the best friends I had at Hamburg Area High during the years leading up to our graduation in 1973.  We attended dances and games when we could get away from our part time jobs (hers at Society Cleaners and mine at Silco).  I remember carting her younger sisters around in her parents' huge station wagon.  We also both ended up getting a much younger brother than ourselves (born in 1969?). Those were the carefree days when we had alot of fun!

Memories of Jaycee Women years!!

I just heard of Sharon's passing and I'm deeply saddened! I have so many wonderful memories of her since we were Kutztown Jaycee Wonen in the 1980a. She had a wonderful Smile and Laugh and Great Personality!!! I am so Blessed to have a Great Friend like Sharon back then!! A couple months ago I ran into. Her in Lyons and we hugged and I was hoping to stay in touch! I am sad that never happened and even sadder that I found out yesterday that she passed away!! She will live on in all of the lives she touched!! My prayers go out to her husband and children, Christy and Travis and their families and her sisters and brother and their families!! I will always remember her!!
