Aunt Sharon

I always liked being around Aunt Sharon as a kid. She always talked to me like what I had to say really mattered. She had the greatest laugh. She also taught me how to knit when I was in fourth grade, with her help I made a yellow and white tam hat. I've made many things since then and I'll always be grateful for her kindness and patience as I learned. May God bless you all. Love you. Deb
