Sharon and I knew each other from Condit elementary on....we lived very close to each other, swam at the same community pool, and our brothers knew each other well, as they were in the same grade.  Sharon was a woman who listened and observed what was going on around her before she spoke...and had a fun sense of humor. Sharon lost her husband, who was a Bellaire grad, too, shortly after our 30th Reunion. She really loved her children so much, and they loved her.  I guess I think of Sharon as not only a friend and classmate, but someone I grew up with in the community.  I will miss her, and the Reunion Committee will miss her calming impact on our planning and implementation of various tasks. Rest in peace, friend.

Thank you, Genny!  I always liked Sharon.

Your  comment about swimming brings back a lot of memories for me, and how Bellaire was divided between the Belaire pool or the Evergreen pool. And of course, the Bellaire Gym on the Condit side, where many a dance was held.  I know so many of you who have literally  life-long friends from Belaire

I am truly sorry for your loss, y'all were ride or die friends from early elementary days, I don't think I ever saw just one of you at our reunions without the other close by (verywhere, not just the registration desk which y'all took care of so well)

I have a couple like that, 50-60-65 years later we are still in constant contact and never run out of things to talk about.  I know about the pangs  that besiege me when I think about someone I have lost.  'Oh, I need to tell xxx about that!', then the melancholy washes over me.  Somehow, someway, at some point the  pain lessens, and I become grateful for the memories and the fortune of having had them in my life
