Well. I've been trying to write this for awhile now. And every time I come back to write it I just can't bring myself to do it. Somehow it felt that if I didn't post this and share, that it wouldn't be real. But it is, and me and my family are very heartbroken. I lost my Grandmother Sharon. It's hard to put a description into words for my Grandmother, as she was just so many wonderful things. She was my best friend, my idol, my number 1 fan at anything I did, a caretaker, my support system, a teacher, a preacher, a comedian, an artist, a singer, and one of the smartest people I know. I will never forget my Grandmother, and I could never express my deepest feelings of sadness I feel now that she has passed. The only thing that is getting me through so far is that I know my Grandmother had the strongest faith in God, and I know that she is with Him in His kingdom, because that's where angels such as my Grandmother belong. My Grandmother has always been a wonderful guardian, but now she is My Guardian Angel. I know she is enjoying her time in Heaven with all of her family and friends she has missed all these years. I feel so much comfort knowing my grandmother is watching down on my family and I and protecting us to the fullest extent. I love you so so much Gram, this was never Goodbye, and It never will be. It is simply, Until We Meet Again ❤ I love you. I miss you. We all love you and miss you. I will keep you in my heart and memory forever Gram...❤❤
Love, your granddaughter Rebecca Sharon

We will miss Sharon very much. She always had a smile and a kind word and prayer for everyone. (As a matter of fact, I will treasure the prayer shawl she gave me as a gift one Christmas and I will always think of her when I use it.) May God Bless her and may she Rest In Peace. Our love and condolences to all.

When two people meet in high school (Mother McAuley) at the age of 14, life is wonderful and sweet. Even at the age of 14, I knew Sharon and I were going to be very good friends. Sharon has remained a cherished friend of mine for 58 years! During those early years we got to know each other, hung out together, laughed a whole bunch together, had some very "serious talks" together, shared wonderful "secrets" as good friends often do, and I was even lucky enough to have been with her when she met the love of her life Jack! I remember talking on the phone with her when she was pregnant with Julie. Oh how happy she was!!! And, when she told me about Becca, I could hear her heart sing!! We have always "stayed in touch" even though we didn't get to see each other as often as we both would have liked to. In my book, Sharon was a sweet genuine person who I will miss talking and sharing my life with. May God Bless the family and my sincere condolences which come straight from the bottom of my heart. I will miss you dear friend!
