Sharon and Sue....My sympathy to you on the loss of your father. He sounded like a great guy! I knew your Mom Norma since we both lived in Altamont growing up and our fathers were friends. Her brother Charlie was in my class. I think I recall Sue and I talking about me knowing your Mom. Sharon, I messaged you on Facebook, after you sent me a friend request....and gave you my email to write if you wished. I doubt you received the message as we are not friends yet. I do not recall Connie but I am sure I had her in class also? Please email me if you wish when things calm down a bit. [email protected] Thinking of you all....Jane Willey
