I met Sharon in 1998 when she was taking care of my mother at Portsbridge Hospice. My mom died on Sharon's birthday a few days later. After my mothers passing, Sharon called my dad, my sisters, and myself to check on us several times and helped my dad find a counselor that specialized in Grieving. I worked for the local fire department and shortly after my mom's passing, we had a fire call at the Hospice. When I arrived, Sharon was pushing patients in beds out into the parking lot as was the protocol. The incident turned out to be very minor, but could have been bad. After everything settled down, we sat down and talked and I found out she had been a nurse in Vietnam at the same time I was there. We immediately became friends and that friendship lasted 20 years, and now I will truly miss my friend. Thank you Sharon for taking care of my family and thank you for being my friend.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. Rest now and God's speed....
