Obit.; SHARPE, Edith "Bunny"


Just trying to help out Eric until he gets back on line in a couple of weeks
by attempting to fill the void. When he's back up and running, I'll let him
continue with his posting of Cumberland County related obits.

Barb Henderson is also helping by making sure I don't miss any.
