I will always remember when Sharon and family came to Wildwood from Detroit. We all swam at the bridge. I always thought she was so pretty and so classy. She gave me a pin when we visited them that was full of colorful stones, I thought I'd never seen anything as beautiful. She will always remain with us in our hearts and memories. God speed! "Until we meet again"
