Sharon. You were that second mom i could always talk too growing up about things i didnt want to talk with my parents about. Never judged me. Was always there to listen. Had no issue telling me you are stupid. So many people loved you. You will always live on in my memories. Thank You.

To the entire family,

Please accept my sincere sympathy. No matter how ill she was, Sharon always maintained a pleasant demeanor. That humbled me, and it was truly a privilege to participate in her care over the last several years.

I am so sorry to hear about Sharon. I met her and her daughter's when she rented a house from me. Then I got her a job at Nationwide Insurance. She was a great friend to me and many others. We had some good times together. I pray that her daughters and Mark remember all the good memories and know that the Lord took away her pain and she is your Angel now especially to her grandchildren. I will miss her talking on Facebook. God bless!!
