So sorry to hear of Sharla's passing. She was a very sweet, kind and wonderful person. She never met a stranger. I worked with her at Bassett Contract many years ago and I would see her on occasion while grocery shopping. She never changed with her sweet smile and personality. I know you will miss her but you have your memories of her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this time.

I am so very sorry to hear about this loss! Some of my fondest memories growing up on Southside were the Halloween parties thrown at her house. She was always so very friendly and fun!
