Dearest cuz Robbie, so sad to learn that my cousin has passed. Was trying to come but was notified that my mother's sister passed on the 24th, and I was responsible for the business of it all. But I was still thinking of you all the time I was in Mexia. Love to you and the family.

I taught with Sharon at Rankin Elementary. We really got to know each other better after we retired and attended the monthly Rankin retiree luncheon. She was a very sweet lady and will be greatly missed.
