    "Even though she was very ill we took a trip to California; me, Deb and Jackie, to see Sharon for our 50th birthdays.  So grateful for that trip.  She was a very courageous person and fought until the end. I was blessed to have known her since we were toddlers. The picture is from a party the year she passed away."
