Sharon and I worked together at Scott AFB when I 1st joined the Air Force in 1981. She was so helpful to me and we remained good friends and kept in touch ever since. I was so very sad to hear of her passing and send my condolences to her extended family. I will miss visiting her and talking about old times.
