I was very surprised and saddened to hear of Sharon`s passing. My deepest condolences to John and family! Her supportive and caring nature will be greatly missed by the family.
"To have, to love, and then to part-
Is the greatest sorrow of one`s heart.
Time may wipe out many things-
But never the memory of those happy days when we were all together."

So sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing. She was a special person, wise and supportive when Kirsten and I were crazy teenagers. I remember her letting me stay overnight Fridays in the summer before University. Lots of happy Saturday mornings watching the smurfs!

I loved Sharon. Got to know her when I cared for her Dad. I also had the privilege of working with her in Assiniboia. She was so caring and compassionate. We also shared many laughs. Her family meant everything to her. God bless her memory and give peace to her family and friends as they deal with this difficult journey.
