Jr. & Beverly, Bob & I so sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. She & I were classmates from 1st grade at Chillicothe school-thru Seniors at EHS. I have a lot of fond memories of her. Used to run into her at a store, but hadn't for quite awhile. Hope her last days weren't too hard- she was a sweet lady! The picture is of my brother Claude (passed last June), Sharon Dalbey, and myself. Sept of 1950, from my Mom's album. Probably the 1st day of school, that year.
