    Summer, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I know how much your mom loved you and your entire family and puppy of course. She adored her grandchildren and they were so good to her. She was an amazing woman, and had unbelievable strength and courage.

    I’ll never forget the CYO dances where your Mom & Dad danced to Hey Jude. I’m not 100% sure but I thought that was their song. The other lifelong memory I have of your Mom and Dad was on senior year prom night. After the dance we hung out and we endlessly laughed and laughed and laughed, till we all had tears running down our faces. Now Bob & Sharon are reunited in heaven and dancing & smiling Eternally.
