    Sharon will be missed profoundly. She was a thoughtful, loving classmate and friend to many. Her success in organizing Forest Hills High School reunions for the Class of 1964 are appreciated by all us classmates. Sharon was a friend to most people who knew her, and she will always remain lovingly in our hearts. Rest in peace, Sharon. You led a good and courageous life.
