Condolences to the entire family. Sharon was my side kick in the KYW Road Show where we became good friends. She was always filled with joy and love and had a bouncy personality to match! Her Mom Helen became my adopted Mom for many of my teenage years. Sharon and I met later in life for a get together and that is where she met her loving husband...what a great match...two great dancers! May your family be blessed with the wonderful memories of her lifetime. Peace be with you.
