Sharon and I met when we were appointed to a Red Cross committee in 1989 to reshape the manner in which Red Cross services are delivered nationwide. In 1991 Elizabeth Dole enticed Sharon to be the senior vice-president of the office that oversaw the delivery of services by Red Cross Chapters nationwide. The following year Sharon appointed me as the volunteer chair of her office. Together we collaborated in the planning and implementation of the 1989 committee's recommendations. Sharon was much loved by the leaders, both paid and volunteer, who were part of the implementation process throughout the nation. Her leadership was, without exaggeration, historic. Sharon once shared with me that her goal in life was to make a difference. Her legacy is that she did make a huge difference for everyone whom she touched in her personal and Red Cross life. Her quick wit, humor, and zest for life will be greatly missed by all of us who had the privilege of being a part of her life.
