Sharon was a shining star! I always told folks that Sharon was my very favorite cousin. As the saying goes, cousins are your first best friends. Her dad Russell and my dad Ralph were brothers of Finnish immigrant parents in Northern Upper Michigan. Our family lived on a dairy farm in Chassell Michigan and her folks would drive from Lake Linden Saturdays to visit on the farm and enjoy our Sauna.
