I was Mrs. Sharon sitter for a short while. During that time we became friends. She taught that no matter what life brings it is always Beautiful. Hot days were spent reading books or shopping in the mall. Cooler days were spent, on the backyard swing or walking around the neighborhood. I'm thankful for the time I was able to spend with Mrs. Sharon. I miss her so very much..

One of the dearest friends and neighbors I have ever had. She meant so much to me and my family throughout the years. I cannot say enough great things about Sharon. Kind, funny, loving, generous, loyal, smart, talented, and a true confidant these words are not even adequate. I met her years ago when she became one of my sons' third grade teacher. She loved him and was so good to him. So many great, happy memories of this incredible lady. Our family was extremely blessed to have you as our friend and neighbor. Although our hearts are completely broken, we rejoice that today you are healed and in glorious Heaven. You are always in our hearts.
