    Sharon, I'm not sure if you will remember me. I worked with you at Chas. Area Chamber of Commerce in Chas., WV in 1964. This was my first job out of high school. My name was Judy Lusher then. I am divorced now and living with my youngest daughter, Angela, in Dunbar, WV. Angela has Down Syndrome but is very healthy and doing great. I have two older daughters with families of their own. I work for the WV Div. of Financial Institutions, a State agency. I have thought of you several times and was wondering where you and Frank were living. I'm sorry for your loss and pray for God's comfort during this time.
