To Sharon's family:
I am so very sorry for your loss. When I returned to work Monday morning and heard the news, my heart sunk. Sharon was such a sweet woman, and all of you are very kind also. It was a pleasure getting to take care of Sharon for many of my shifts, and also your needs as a family too. I am very sad I didn't get to say goodbye to Miss Sharon and you all. I know now she is resting in peace and pain free. I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers through this difficult time, and will continue to keep you in my thoughts especially through the upcoming holiday season that wil be different and difficult for the family. Take care.

I hope you can cling to the wonderful happy memories and remember her love that will sustain you in this difficult time. God is holding your hand (Isaaih 41:13). I will be uplifting you in prayer. Love you 3 so much...Cheryl Turnbull (Miss Rhodes). Lenexa KS
