Another remembrance! She and I loved to do craft projects together. In the late `60´s we created Christmas balls using Christmas cards. I am still making them. Some were covered with melted wax and others were covered with glitter. I am sure that I have made 100´s of them. Latest one was a picture of my church for sale at our bizarre.

Sharon and I met at Radford University as music majors. Next she was also employed by Lynchburg City Schools and moved to my street. We became very close friends. Sadly for me, she moved to Germany. I missed her so much. She was one of a kind!!!!
