Sharon was my 6th grade teacher. I thought the world of her. She was kind but at the same time, she was a great teacher. Dan did my taxes for many years. My heart felt condolences go out to their family. They will always be in my prayers.

My memories go back to mid 1970’s when coach Truelove “Dan” and Mrs Truelove “Sharon “ where teaching and coaching in Spearman. They both where a big part of my life helping our family in a real time of need do to my mother’s medical condition. They loved me like one of there own kids. Sharon loved playing golf and baking cookies. She has a special part in many many kids lives. She ran her race well and finished with a great family to continue the family legacy.
God Bless the Truelove’s

I remember Sister Sharon fondly. Sharon and my Mother were friends for many years. I remember Sharon and Dan at many church meetings and the many times I was blessed to attend services at the church in Colorado City.

I remember my Aunt Sharon's laugh, her sweet red lipped smile, her happiness, and her beauty. I remember her love, her honesty, her hugs and kisses. I remember the way she would point to each word in our hymnals as we sang, because I hadn't yet fully learned to read or follow the notes. She would run her fingers through my hair during preaching, because I was young and it calmed me. Sharon Truelove taught me who I wanted to be when I grew up, and I love her dearly.
