Sharon,

You're in our thoughts and prayers. When I read about your mom and Charlie riding bikes everywhere, I immediately thought of us kids riding bikes on Islands and coming up with "Ruffles have ridges... you can finish the line :)

I have so many wonderful memories of all the summers at the pool, family vacations together, and the love and support we've given each other over the years. I'm sending a virtual hug to you!

Cindy (and Mike) Hartman

Sharon, Craig and Family,
Our deepest sympathies are with you on the passing of Joan. I helped out Joan and Charlie when I could. They lived just 2 houses down from us. Sometimes clearing snow and one time after Charlie passed, Joan could not get the back door to close. I was able to realign it for her. I went to school with Gary and remember times in cub scouts. My Mom, Mrs. Lill and Joan the great Den Mothers. I will miss her talks and seeing her and Charlie riding around everyday in the neighborhood.

Matha and Bill Cheetham, Jr.
