Met Ron in jr high.  He took a car load of us home from ninth grade "banquet" since he had his drivers license already, fun memory.  One of the most easy going, yet competitive people I have known.  I still remember how sad it was to hear of his accident. Wish he could be with us this weekend.

From Thomas Parker on April 15th, 2017
Mike and I had a mutual love of cars. While he was in England, he took pictures of a car race and brought movies back for me to see upon his return. He played a joke on me once, I knew that he was in the Air Force and he dropped by for a visit, with a wig on that made him look like a hippy! Boy was I surprised. We all had a great laugh over that one. 
 
From Bill Sweger on April 27th, 2017
Mike and I were great friends. We loved to work on our cars, my VW and his Desoto Hemi with a fluid clutch. The first time we changed oil on his car in my driveay we didn't get the filter seal in right and pumped about a gallon of oil on the driveway. That took a lot of cleaning. Dad just laughed. 
I had two friends named Mike. My dad called Mike Haggard, strawberry. So when I started to talk about Mike he would say "Cherry or Strawberry". I miss you man!

The nicest person I'd ever met. I thought she was a movie star when I first met her. She reminded me of Sandra Dee.  So pretty.  She never made a difference between me and the popular girls.  She gave me a true friendship that made an impact on my life.  We never talked about anybody except cute boys and clothes.  We ran all around Rotary park playing til near dark.  She was smart, pretty, gracious and my friend.  
 
From John Wetz on April 26th, 2017
Sharon was my life. She was the best mom, wife and friend to all. I miss her every day and wish she could join our 50th. She absolutely loved seeing classmates and visiting our hometown. She taught me so much about being a better person and to eliminate hate and enjoy more Love.
 
From stanley Hiner on April 28th, 2017
Very classy young lady in school.  Friendly to everyone, great smile.  Sounds like she made a wonderful best friend to John.

Sharon was one of my best friends. She was the kindest, most accepting person you could meet. I had the pleasure of spending the day with her when I was back for our 20th reunion and it was like we had never been apart.

I owed alot to Jo Ellen. Most of you won't remember that My family and I had a terrible car wreck on the way to church, Mothers Day morning May 14, just bsfore graduation. I/we had not finished class work yet and my English teacher, Mrs. Hacker would not pass me, to graduate, till I did my memory work. I could barely see from one eye and could not read.  I was not one of her favorites, but Jo Ellen was so Jo Ellen was able to read to me, in the hospital then hear my recitation. Mrs Hacker accepted that and passedd me so I could graduate with everyone. Jo Ellen and I been dating our senior year and I wasn't much fun for the prom and other senoir stuff. She never complained and stuck by me. I loved for that and am sad to not be able to tell her so again.

From Bill Sweger on April 27th, 2017
Mike was one of my best freinds in high school. We shared a love of swimming and both drove VW beetles. We did everything together. He was murdered, shot to death in July of '91 less than two weeks before my father died in August and a month before my neice died of meningitis as she began college her freshman year. That was a hard, hard month. I miss them all, frequently and deeply. 
My dad called him strawberry because I was also freinds with Mike Cherry. When I would talk about Mike, dad would always say "Cherry or Strawberry". Thanks for all the great memories Mike.

Mom & I rushed to your house where I had spent so many hours. I rushed to your room  but you weren't there. Even tho your mom kept that room exactly as you left it, you never returned.  We would never spend time here again & do silly things 15 year old girls do.  Our secrets & fun times would never be again. I love you, my friend.  I remember how your mom would let you drive to church before you got your license.  I was always glad she did because you weren't ever gonna be able to get it.  
I love you my friend!        Charlotte
