We are comforted by all of our wonderful memories of Sharon.
She was a special and sweet soul and we were privileged to know her and call her family.
In lieu of flowers, and in honor of her warm-heartedness,
we felt it was fitting to make a monetary donation to the American Heart Association in her honor.

With love,
Jeanette, Diana, and family and Eva and family.

You never said I'm leaving
You never said Good-Bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why...

I'm very blessed to have grown up with a grandma like you...I couldn't have asked for more but for more time to be with you! I am Thankful for the time we had and all the memories too!!

Heaven gained another Angel and I know you'll be watching over me. I love you Grams and remember Good-Byes are not forever, Good-Byes are not the end...They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again!

I miss you so much grams

...I love you more! 💜

You honey dew I don't even know where to begin... We definitely have way too many memories and good times then to share on a short page. I will cherish each and every one. All of them; from going to fairs, to the mall, to sleep overs, to bingo, to you name it. Each and every single one has a special place. I can't thank you enough for all of the courage and wisdom you have passed on to me. You're my inspiration, my role model and I'm going to carry it all with me each and everyday. I love you so much grandma and miss you so much!! Fly high you little cutie!! 💜💜
Love, Shell Shell

She was a Wonderful lady and was so kind to everyone. When I saw her last year I will remember the hug she gave me. She will be truly missed by all of those that knew her. I know her Granddaughters will miss her dearly and of course Bobby.
My heart and Prayers go out to you all.
