“I remember Sharon Swaney from when I lived in South Charleston, Ohio. I lived there until I was 14 years of age. Sharon was a couple of years older than I was but we lived across the street from each other. I looked up to her. She was my Idol. They had a church and I would go there with Sharon. We loved to sing. I love Sharon so much and I wish I could have seen her one more time. I will see her in Heaven. I love you Sharon. My heart is aching for you and your family. Your good friend, Susie ” - Susie Kinnaird Pearson
