Stefan,
On this the one month anniversary of your Mom's passing, words still elude me. Your Mom and I shared many childhood days and hours playing, chatting, sharing. Our adult lives were not as interconnected, but the bond was always there and we knew that we could count on each other and enjoy each other's company in person or on the phone.

She was physically beautiful, mentally gifted, graceful, talented and totally committed to her family. She gave Aunt Vie, your Dad and you the best of care. She will guide you from God's heaven until you meet again.

I wish you all you wish for in your life. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending warm heartfelt hugs and love. Hope to see you soon.

Sharon and I met for the first time in Jamaica in the late 60”s, and became close friends when we migrated to the U.S. with homes a 10 minute drive apart. While expecting her first child, she took on the role of godmother to my first daughter Nikki, and when Kelli followed 3 years later, her ” family” suddenly grew by 4. Sharon and Basil opened their hearts and home to Ken and I and the girls as they visited regularly and played with Stefan along with Karen’s boys Alex and Yann.
I am so grateful that after all these years there was still a close knit between the families even while the children lived out of state, and we, in Central Florida.
I will always cherish our bond and would like to continue that friendship through Stefan who already knows we are here to give him support, and that our doors are always open.
I fondly recall her soft smile; her elegance with a European flair of dressing; the accentuating signature scarves; her beautiful skin tone with make-up meticulously done; and of course those manicured polished nails.
Sharon was a kind, compassionate, gentle soul overflowing with empathy, giving freely without complaint or self- regard. It was remarkable that for so many years, she managed to juggle her schedule between work and home, to carefully and lovingly care for her Mom, with the help of Basil and Stefan. She readily accepted the fact that there would be little or no playtime. I have so much admiration for her dauntless spirit and stoicism especially during the past 2 years when she had to struggle not only with her own illness, but with the sudden passing of Basil, and then her Mom.
She found bravery, fortitude, peace and solace through prayer; her steadfast Faith in God; the Church; and the Sacraments in particular Holy Communion.
Sharon was truly an angel on earth where she touched many lives including my own. Her soul now rests in eternal peace.
Sharon and Aunt Sharon,
We love you and will miss you always.
Ken, Myrtle, Nikki, Kelli

Dear Karen,
First, I loved your poem, so beautiful. You and I were teenage friends, through Immaculate high school and neighbours. I remember Sharon as your SO pretty older sister, who drove a Mercedes-Benz and made the car look good! Basil was always there, the attentive boyfriend, I was glad to hear they got married. On one of my visits to your home, your Mom showed me Sharon's room and said "she's the tidy one" which didn't bother you one bit. Well it's been a few years since we connected, you in Switzerland, me in British Columbia Canada but I'd like to keep in touch, life is short, I'll always be here for you. My condolences to Stephan.

Dear Sharon, many memories of good time with friends and family I will always cherish.
Your quiet yet firm demeanor reminded me of your dear mother. Your kindness during the not so good times and always remembering the Chinese rice soup. The little things that made me smile beautiful China Doll........ never swim before 4pm and always in the shade; discussing the best foods yet chowing down on what we liked the best.
Rest In Peace in the loving arms of the Lord, and your Basil knowing we will always be here for Stefan. 🙏

Dear Stefan and Karen,
I am so very sorry for your loss.
Sharon was such a sweet soul; and though I only got to know her in the last few years of her life, she made such an impact on me. Her commitment to the years of care for her Mom was an expression of love and sacrifice uncommon to many. Her trust in God on her good days and bad days was a testimony of her faith in action.
Her legacy of love and devotion lives on and I am thankful for the time spent with her.
Love to you and the family,
Valli

A SIBLING'S FAREWELL

A wisp of hair,
A fine featured silhouette
Memories of childhood moments
Intertwined
Of long ago
On distant shores.
For so long, the four of us
Until recently,
Then only two.

The rapier sharp intellect,
A naturally bestowed beauty
Which morphed full circle
With humility
And selfless love.
It was a hard fought battle
Ending with peaceful release
At the Hour of Divine Mercy.
A fervent prayer
You saw His Face
And felt His welcoming
Embrace.

Even though
I shall forever miss
Our shared identity 'nattering'
And the promise of cavorting
Under the Tuscan sun,
'Midst far flung lands
Moments of despair
Will yield to time's patina
And I will carry
The best of
The best memories of you
In the center
Of centers
Of my soul.

From the Family
