As a very young girl, Sharon was quite impressive to me. She tried to encourage a skinny legged tom boy to act more like a lady, stop eating mud, living in trees like a monkey and comb my hair from time to time. I remember being in awe of her big feathery eye lashes, her perfect blond hair and the occasional "Blue Jungle Juice Cocktail" that she would carry around the house from time to time. She was a beautiful soul and she will always hold a special place in my heart and memories.
