My entire life I have known the "Baumgart twins" & their family They were best friends of my sister Maureen. I'm sure they are dancing to some 60's music. My sympathy to her family. RIP Sharon

Aunt Sharon was a warrior who endured many challenges throughout her life. Our family is terribly effected by her passing, but she will be forever loved in our hearts and prayers. Her family was her pride and joy! Will keep Shelly and Rhonda in our prayers too.
