Our symphaties with Sharon and the family. I graduated with you and Mike from Rock Creek in 1964, believe we rode the same school bus. We just moved to the Methodist home in Warren this past year. I don't know the location of very many classmates. Sorry to hear about your loss. Dick & Joyce Hinton 801 Huntington Ave. Warren, In. 46792
