I have so many fond memories of Sharlene or "Shar" as I would call her and will miss her dearly. She is a wonderful lady with the kindest heart and would help anyone in any way that she could. Holidays will not be the same without her. I know she is in heaven which brings me great comfort to know that I will see her again someday.
