Sharyn was my friend as well as my aunt. I remember being one of her bridesmaids when she married my uncle. We went to concerts together at Hampton - Roy Orbison, Air Supply, George Thorogood to name a few, took day trips together, and often spent time just visiting... I remember when we went to the Friendly Farm with the boys when they were little. Not sure who had more fun, them or her watching them. I often used to visit when the boys were little and I had a Ford Ranger at the time, the boys used to love it when they could climb in Kaffee's truck. Sharyn and I would laugh at them as they played.
I've many memories of Sharyn, we shared a lot over the years and I will miss her.
Nate and Zack my thoughts are with you and your families. I know this is a difficult time and you have my deepest sympathies. Love to you both. ~ Kaffee

I have great memories of my cousin, Sharyn. Our babies were about the same age and we would get together about once a month before we moved away. We had great times exercising to Richard Simons, baking or making chocolates and laughing. We really enjoyed creating Christmas crafts for friends and family. My children's teachers enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie boxes that she taught me to create. And, many people enjoyed the chocolates that she also taught me to make. I also remember that she recycled long before it was popular. I am grateful for these precious memories.

Sharyn was kind enough to let me be "Grammy Merrill", and I enjoyed spending time with the boys as they were growing up. We shared a lot of great conversations about various topics we both enjoyed. She was a big fan of Neil Diamond. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, "Grammy Merrill "
