    Dear David and Family,
    I am saddened to hear of Sharon’s passing but feel comfort in knowing that she loved the Lord and had a strong relationship with him. She blessed me so many times with beautiful handmade cards and words of encouragement. Her books marks helped me with my “sign ministry” at the doctor’s office and I loved doing that with her. I know that heaven shines brighter with her presence. Please know that her life made a difference here, and she will be missed. You are all in my thoughts, in my heart, and in my prayers.

    Our friend Bonnie and I sang with Sharon in a trio we called the Triads from the eighth grade through high school. Sharon went on several vacations with our family when we were young. Sharon and I would sit in the back seat and sing , Sharon with a beautiful alto and me, the soprano. What fun we had and what great memories we made. Sharon just got ahead of us to sing in Heaven’s choir. Will miss you sweet friend.
