Uncle Eddie, you may never read this but I felt compelled to send a message acknowledging our discovery of Aunt Sharon's passsing. News travels slowly sometimes and this is the case. We're just now on East coast in the Rosane family hearing about your loss. So sad to hear this news and so sudden for you all, I understand. I will always remember Aunt Sharon for her friendship and generosity she gave my mom, Wyona(Rosane)Hatchett, Ed's sister. I am the oldest of Richard and Wyona's children, Jacquie. Sending prayers for your peace. Love to all.

Dear Ed and family: We are so sad to hear that Sharon is no longer with you and with us in this life. She was an absolute delight to know and we always looked forward to seeing you both in Texas or Colorado. We cherished our brief time with her and hope you will remember all the joy you shared, every day as we will remember the great times we spent with you both. If you need anything, we are here. Sincerely, Andi & Carole Biancur, Colorado Springs, CO, Air Force Academy Class of 1960.

Colonel Rosane,

My sympathies to you and your family on the passing of Sharon. She indeed was a lovely lady who brought joy and kindness to all. It was my pleasure to have known her. Take care of yourself.

Sharon will always remain in my heart. She was a great mentor to me when Bob and I first moved to San Antonio 24 years ago and became part of the USAA family. I always admired her grace and poise. She took me under her wing and taught me valuable lessons that I have applied in my life to this day. With no family in San Antonio I appreciated her visits on the birth of my children. All our love to Ed and the family, Robert and Gabriela Flannery

My deepest sympathy Ed. Sharon always greeted people with that great smile and a happy thought. She lit up every room she entered. She was definitely your better half. Those who sustain our memories are never far away. Thinking of you my friend.

Ed and family. What a big loss for all of you, and our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sharon's ready smile and laugh brightened every room. She was a joy to play golf with or just talk to in the 19th hole. May her love of you sustain you and may God's loving arms embrace you and bring you some peace. How very sad to lose her! Ric and I pray for her and your family.
