Dave, Junior, Linda and family - Losing someone who was always there for others, who cared and gave so much of themselves, who loved life and who 'made a difference' is truly heartbreaking. Losing the ability to pick up the phone and chat, stop by and visit or look forward to the next hug will also be unbearable. But God knows best and he chose to take Sharon home to rest and enjoy her new life. Despite the pain - there is joy as she no longer suffers. She will remain in the hearts and memories of many blessed with knowing her. She will always be there looking down and watching over you all. She would want you to smile and be happy until you all meet again. She will be missed. May God help you all to heal day by day as you remember all the ways she made you smile or laugh throughout the years. With our sincere sympathy, Bill and Val
