Sharon's Family, I was heartbroken to hear that Sharon had passed away. Such a sweet and kind person. I came to know her best through the roadside table of sweet corn/tomatoes/blackberries all those summers. We had a lot of fun conversations. Sending hugs and comfort to you all during the coming days.
