Sharon, was always so incredibly special to me. Her smile, her hugs, her laughter- even as a kid I always felt at home around her. She was always kind and made time for me. I will miss her but I’m so thankful to have known her. ❤️

Sharon always made me feel so special! Even as a child, she would take the time to talk to me and made me feel like it mattered that I was there. She always had such a loving heart! She will be remembered fondly always!

Warmth, strength, and genuineness enveloped you when Sharon was with you. Her smile would disarm you, draw you in, and put you at ease; her deep voice reassuring. She will not be forgotten; rather, cherished in memory by family anf friends alike. Reunion one day. I look forward to that.

I loved precious cousin Sharon! She was a joy to spend time with! She was always so lovable, so caring and so kind. She was a blast to talk to about family or anything you wanted to tell. She was always pleasant and a delight to laugh with! She was an amazing Christian! She faced death so bravely. She is my hero! I’ll miss you, dearest cousin! But you are celebrating in heaven with our God-free from pain and no more tears!

Thinking of your family during this difficult time!

Aunt Sharon's smile would light up a room...and then she would laugh. And right then and there everyone in that room knew they were in the presence of someone who truly loved life. Like anyone, I know she had her ups and downs but you would never know she had any downs if you were blessed enough to know her. I suspect her faith allowed her to be that way. She loved her family and would do anything for any of them. Rest in peace Aunt Sharon.
