I wish we could have been closer, I wish i didn't live so far away. I cherish the memories of the times I did get to go visit with Dad. Sharon was the sweetest person and husband Phillip the best. I remember her letting me sit on her horse Frosty when i was a little girl, and then singing "bid by heart goodbye" by John Michael Montgomery in the car last time i was there. It's been way too long and I'm sorry i didn't get to say goodbye.
Forever in my heart she will be.

Sharon was a great friend to me and was there for me during a lot of difficult times in my life. Life happens and we didn’t see each other much but I never stopped loving her. A beautiful person with a fierce love for her family and Jesus and this world is dimmer without her.

Oh my sister. I remember mama telling the story of the day I came home from the hospital. Mama said you whispered in her ear, this is my baby where is everyone else's. You were the beautiful one, the smart one and the most talented . I will miss my childhood roommate. I will remember how you always fussed because my side of the room was always messy. You were such a clean freak. All the secrets we shared as children. I'm sorry mama made you take your little sister places you did not want to. I kinda wish mama had made you take me with you now so I did not have to miss you. Your legacy will always live on with your girls and their babies. I love you so much. Give Jesus and mama a hug for me.

I met Mrs. Sharon this tax season at H&R Block. She immediately made me feel welcomed. Anytime I needed advice, had a work question or just needed a good laugh she was my go to person. She embraced me with open arms to the RBC hr block family. Although we didn’t know each other long I learned so much from her. I admired the love she had for her husband, children and especially her grand babies. I will deeply miss you Mrs. Sharon and that million dollar smile . I love you and will remember you forever. Sending my deepest condolences and prayers to her family.

I got to know Sharon this year through work. The first time in my lifetime, we shared a prayer, led my Sharon, for a situation that we had no control over, Coronavirus. I will treasure that moment, that prayer until I see her again! My prayers go out to her family and friends. She made an impression on my life that I have shared with others.

I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting for the 1st time and working with Ms. Sharon this past tax season at HRBLOCK. Her passion for work ethic and family is amazing. Her faith is very strong. This is a lady who had no problem stopping what she was doing to pray with a fellow coworker on more than one occasion. Ms. Sharon put God 1st, family 2nd, work 3rd. I know when I first met her I liked her immediately. A very outspoken woman who loves life and all that it has to bring. Today, everyone who knew her is heartbroken. Today as we mourn the loss of a sweet lady, wife, mother, sister, grandma and friend, we also should celebrate that she is now in the company of Angels and in the arms of her heavenly Father.
She will be dearly missed and we are definitely going to miss her expertise at HRBLOCK.
Our condolences to the family for your loss, my prayer is for peace and comfort during this time.
Rene', David & Jaden Gibson
