So sorry for your loss. I went to school with Debbie. My mom was quite fond of Sharon and spoke highly of her.

It's a very sad realization that our mom is no longer going to be with us physically.

She was a very tough fighter but her constant battles and visits to hospitals, nursing facilities and doctors offices eventually wore her down.

She was able to get her wish and passed away at home surrounded by her family.

She worked hard at everything she did even when it came to ironing under shirts, removing weeds in the driveway with a steak knife and having to put up with me as a kid and from what I hear, adventures as a toddler escaping the house.

Everyone that had crossed her path would comment on what a nice and polite person she was. She loved volunteering at the hospital where she was able to reunite with old friends.

As I reflect back, I'm very grateful for being lucky enough to have the parents I had. They provided us the love, knowledge and freedom to grow up to be who we are today.

Thank you for all your condolences.
