    Sorry to hear about the loss of Sharon. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. When Con passed away I tried to find working telephone numbers to let someone know, but between me and my girls everything that we had did not work. I I am so very sorry for the loss of your loved one. Sincerely Dixie
