Though I never met Sharon, David and his sister Diane go way back with my family--all going to Nineveh School. Was I able to keep up with you through my sister, Barbara Mitchell and her husband Dale. I knew you are good friends. My condolences to you for the loss of your wife and sister-in-law. May she live on in your hearts and minds through many precious and beautiful memories. The Lord grant you comfort, strength and His Peace, Larry Allen
