To the Family of Sharon;
I always remember Sharon with a big beautiful smile. She was a joy to have has a client. Even when her health was getting worse she never lost her smile and positive being. I am sorry I can't make the funeral but I am sending prayers and positive thoughts. Take care.

Her hairdresser, Sharon.

I had the pleasure of creating some wonderful memories with one of the nicest, most genuine ladies I have ever known. Never did she speak a bad word about anyone. She was always smiling and up for an adventure. Lisa Morgan and I have fond memories of monthly dinners out with Sherry to restaurants from Harpswell to Lewiston/Auburn to Portland, scrabble games, Yahtzee, our bus trips to theater productions throughout New England, going to the movies and many more escapades, as well as visiting her in the nursing home as we watched quietly as she slipped away. Parkinson’s robbed her of precious moments with her family, including hiking, gardening and cross-country skiing. She left this world leaving such an impression on me and countless others – how kindness really has a lasting effect. Whether it be a kind word from Sherry, her warm smile or her compassion with those around her, she will be so missed by me and everyone who knew her. Rest in peace, my friend. You will forever be in my heart.

I send my most sincere sympathy to the family. I would be at the service if possible but am currently living in Morocco.

I met Sherry when we worked at the Law Office of Robert Laskoff. We had a lot of fun there and at our monthly dinners which we each hosted with another friend also. I think we did that for about a year. Sherry is one of the best people I know. She is always in my thoughts and will be missed.

Much love to all of you.

Uncle Vern, Steve & Cindy, Dave & Cristy,

First of all I'm so sorry for your loss. Aunt Sharon was my Godmother and after you all moved back East she and Uncle Vern were so very good to me giving me a place to go to get away in the winter and get more acquainted with you guys. I'll never forget my trips to your house and hanging out with all of you.

I'll miss her terribly.

Love
Rick Burnham (your nephew and cousin)
