Fred, I know Sharon is in a better place, unlocked from her earthly body! It was always a pleasure knowing her. I still remember meeting her for the first time. I was a kid hanging around the shop but I recognized a pretty girl when I saw one! Thankful for your long life together. It was great to work for you and your parents in the 60s.
