Sadly I do not remember much about Sharon in high school, but we were very good friends in elementary school going into Jr High School.   Sharon LOVED horses and her room was filled with pictures, trophies, and ribbons she won for her riding skills.   We were both tom-boys back then and would ride our bikes to go fishing near the intersection of Walnut and Salem streets.   I remember quite a few trips to Pleasure Island in Wakefield and my first adventure with friends and no parents was with Sharon.   One set of parents would drop us off and another would pick us up (sound familiar???).    It was our first taste of freedom.   I do not know why our friendship did not continue into High School, but Sharon was my good friend through 6th grade and into 7th grade.   I would LOVE to know about the woman she became...

Sharon was a kind and fun loving person. Both of us were classmates at the South School and did some of the summer activities (like archery). I would see her occasionally in the summer at the Branch library on Salem Street (now closed) and together with some of the Maple Street/Brook Drive guys would all ride our bikes in the back lot of the Fire Station. 

We were friends the last couple of years in High School and off and on later as a lot of us were in College. A bunch of us (names escape me at the moment) went to a bunch of the concerts that were held on Boston Common and at the Arc (on Landsdown Street) as well as other places. She and I  bumped into each other while shopping  at Star Market  and saw Bobby Orr in 1971 as he was exiting the store in Saugus after his food shopping. I asked Bobby Orr for an autograph and all I had was a $1 bill but he very kindly gave me his autograph (which I still have somewhere).

I saw her briefly after College but lost track of her in 1980 and beyond. I remember giving her a ride from her parent's house to her apartment in Malden right after the roads were opened by the Governor after the 1978 Blizzard. We stayed in touch off and on and then she moved from Malden  (and in those days your phone number changed - no cell phones) and we lost touch. It is a lot easier now with email and cell phones. Sharon, you will be missed (along with others) when we gather in September.
