“Cookie” was one of the best people I have ever known. She was such a special part of my childhood memories and beyond. We were not blood related, but she was certainly a part of my family and I consider myself very fortunate to have had her in my life. She was witty, smart, generous and full of life. Her laugh was infectious. She loved her family and friends dearly. If all of us could be half as genuine and kind as she was, this world would be a far better place. She will be deeply missed and always loved. ❤️

Sharon was the ultimate second Mother to all her Brothers, Sisters and nieces and nephews. She always had that great smile and even this 4th of July she smiled through all her illness. I am so glad I saw her then. May she Rest in Peace and be spending lots of time with her parents and Uncle Brownie and Aunt Rita. She will be sorely missed by a great family.

Sharon was a wonderful daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. I fondly remember fierce Trivial Pursuit battles at her home at Thanksgiving with my family and the rest of my Legere cousins.

I am so sorry for your loss. She’ll be in our hearts always.

Love,
Lisa

Hi Sharon, I certainly didn't say all of what and how I feel about you on Oct. 3rd. You were a great sister and your kind ways will be missed by me. I was so happy for you when your dogs came into your life. I knew that they filled a big gap in your life. Your cooking skills were tasty, your ample amount of food was hysterical, you were a class act. I'll never forget the day that we ran away from home. I'm not sure why you did that but I feel honored that you picked me to accompany you. I really appreciate the time you spent on Laurie, Ann, Kathy and John taking them on vacation or where ever else you choose. Every time I think of you, you will put a smile on my face. I will miss you more than you know. Love you and thanks for being my sister.

Auntie,

Thank You for the memories and everything you taught me. I learned so much and I love reminiscing about trips to the mall, going out to eat, our S.C vacations, and talks had. No one compared to being as generous and genuine as you. I love you and will miss you very much!

Love Your Nephew,

Cory
