Hi Sharon, I was so sorry to read about the passing of your Mother.I’m sure you won’t remember me but I knew your Mother and father when you lived in Levittown. I know some of your family went to All St. Episcopal Church in Fallsington. I believe your Dad and my father (Charles Jackson) did a lot of work together there at Church.Thank you for posting about your Mothers passing. It brought back a lot of memories of the early years here in Levittown.Prayers for you and your family in this difficult time.Karen Jackson Mawby

Sharon, Hutch and I extend our sympathy in the loss of your mother. How blessed you were to have her for so long and that she could witness her impact/influence on you as you raised your family.We have wondered about you over the years...where you lived, your family, your dental practice. Perhaps as life settles a bit you can email us with an update. [email protected] you during your years with Campus Crusade and visiting you at Cornell were impactful experiences in my faith journey.Fondly, Hutch and Linda Hamilton
