I was a childhood friend of Sharon's from the Gibsonia Presbyterian Church. My cousin Joan reminded me of seeing the Gray girls, ducks in a row, in their Easter bonnets. Shay was a beautiful spirit. My sympathy to her family and friends.

"Jon, Maggie, Sarah, Mitch, Chris and Family. Our hearts ache and tears of sadness fill our eyes at the loss of Sharon. She and Paul were our dear friends. She was truly a wonderful and beautiful person. We fondly remember our trip with them to the Bahamas. The Caribbean sun was just a small distant light compared to Sharon's warm and brilliant personality and the love that shined between her and Paul. The universe has lost one of it's brightest stars but we will keep the memory of her glowing smile and the loving twinkle of her eyes in our hearts forever. You have our deepest and most sincere sympathy for your loss and you are in our thoughts and prayers."
