Sharon, even though you’ve departed from this earth, you will never truly be gone. You are still alive in my heart. Laughing, loving, sharing yourself. Through those memories, you live on. I am so blessed to have known you.

Sharon was a gift bestowed on me through friends from her past. I was grateful to have her in my present and will miss her warmth and wit in the future. I know she was devoted to her family and to them I extend my deepest sympathies and hopes for healing and peace.

It must have begun sometime in the middle 1950. We met as young children in grade school. Same classes same schools same teachers same playmates.
As we grow into teenagers the bond became stronger, and we developed a lifelong kinship. It never mattered how often we saw each other, or how much time we were apart. That connection was always rock solid and we would always move forward in the most positive way we could find.
We always said we were going to spend our old age, laughing and remembering how much fun and joy we had, just being young and carefree.
I miss you, I just hope I am able to remember all the highlights of young girls, young women who lived and grew up in Azusa,California. There are so many good times! Here is too a life well lived and enjoyed and appreciated .Love you and will see you again. My Dear Friend rest in peaceful slumber.
