  3. To God be the glory, I first met Sharon when she was eight years old, I was then 16 years old, she and her sister Maria was two beautiful young children. As we grew older our acquaintance stayed connected through out the years with her brothers Lefty, David, her Mom and Dad. Her beautiful smile will be remembered forever. Gone but not forgotten. Family stay strong in God, much love Gloria Goode-Brown and family ❤️
