Former neighbor, classmate & dear friend. ,Kearney ,Missouri

I am so sorry for the lost of my friend Sharon. She was a very loving & caring person to her family & friends. We got to enjoy our earlier years when were neighbors in Standish, MO. & in High School in Carrollton, MO.. Of course after she & her family moved back to Hardin, we slowly lost touch with one another. But, Facebook brought back together again. We attended the last 2 class of reunions in Carrollton together. Of course we "Just" had to stop off at the Dari Maid! My Love & Prayers to her family. Sincerely, Mary (Link) Davis Kearney, MO
