I will miss Aunt Sharon because she was always fun being with at family reunions. She was always determine to get the christmas cards out or the birthday cards out or the gradualation cards out. When she was not feeling good and she wanted to get the cards out she had Uncle Vern give them out. She was a rough lady and I respect her for that. Aunt Sharon I hope you are having fun up there and I hope you are with grandma. We love you and miss you and We praying for the family we love you guys

Dear Vern: Sharon and your family always made my sister and I feel welcomed and loved. I still recall the mounds of grilled cheese sandwiches she’d make for us after playing outside with the boys. I always felt like one of her boys. Sharon will be missed and always remembered. My prayers are for you and your family. Adam Williams

Dear Vern & family, So sorry to hear of Sharon's passing.
We had many fun days at LeLynn RV Resort in Florida, card games(did the women win more often than the men or were we even?). Jaspur always wanted to stop in to see us because he knew that he would get a treat, he even knew which cupboard we kept them in.
It was a blessing to know Sharon and consider her a friend, we know she will be missed.
