I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Sharon for 19 years and we shared so many stories and jokes over that time. No matter how busy or stressed we got at work, we could always count on Sharon to be calm & even tempered. She was a pleasure to work with and I think of her often.

My deepest sympathy for your loss.
I met Sharon in 1976 when I worked at the switchboard and she was in the admitting office. She covered my breaks. She was the sweetest person ever. I will remember her always. My prayers to Fred and her family.
