So very sorry for your loss Sharon. We share a common bond. Your family was the Thrower's from Tuskegee and I used to live in Tuskegee. And I married into the Thrower family from Greenville, AL. I have enjoyed seeing all your sweet photos and memories of you and Mike. Prayers and deepest sympathy to you and your family! God gained another angel this week.

We lived down the street from Mike and Sharon for 19 years. We shared birthdays, parties, wonderful meals together, and Mike and Sharon watched my children grow up to be adults. We loved Mike so much and he will be missed by my family. Sharon we pray God will wrap his arms around you in the many days ahead as you go through this difficult time.
