I met Sharon several years ago at our church.............she was pure joy for me...........................we spent a lot of time together going places......................She called me nearly every day!!!! We were silly and laughed so much at each other................her glass was never half-empty.............she was always a happy person...............she was very inspiring to me..................she always had such a good attitude about life. I took her to church each week to Greencastle Christian Church and she absolutely loved our church and did not like to miss. She loved our Lord so much!

She loved her family so very much. each time she had a family event with her family, she always told me how much fun they had and she loved her family so much!

I had the opportunity to meet some of Sharon's family and they loved her as much as she loved them! That made me so happy to hear the love they had for her! You are a wonderful family!

I will selfishly miss her, but she is now with our Heavenly Father, and what a place to be!!!!
