Cynthia Avens To Uncle Otis and Family: I am sorry to hear about Sharon. I've been sitting staring at her picture and remembering the times when your family would visit ours in Virginia Beach and Sharon and I would play on the swings in the back yard. I don't have many memories of her, but that one is so clear as if it happened not so long ago. You have my condolences as I pray for comfort for you.
