  Even though we were distant cousins, we didn't meet until OJHS and from then on we were friends as well as cousins.  I miss you my friend.   Sandy Butler

Sharon and I worked near each other in the Oneida Ltd. sales office after we graduated from high school, and often rode to work together.  She was later the maid of honor at our wedding in April 1965!  Sharon, we miss you........heart

It was my privilege to be with Sharon the last few hours she lived upon earth. Rest assured, she was not afraid to pass over, and her heart knew and felt the love of God.
