sharon was my first nurse manager. As the years went on, I found sharon was strict but fair. She kept working with nurses even when they made mistakes, and for this she has my respect. She showed mercy and grace, and I pray that the Lord shows her all the mercy, grace, and respect that she revealed to us. She was one of a kind and I love her still. She will not be forgotten. Be proud of her, she is not gone, just waiting till we one day join her and all of our loved ones.
