I was so fortunate to have grown up with the Kennedy family. She babysit my brother Rusty , before he started school, and I would go after school at times to play with all the kids. I remember Sharon’s quiet nature but beautiful smile. She was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. I’ll be praying for your family during this time of unexpected loss.
