I can still remember the first time I met Sharon, Matt and Melissa, I was struck by how upbeat and caring they were. Even in Sharon’s difficult times, she amazed me with her ability to always be so positive and full of life and love. I would watch her eyes light up as Joseph would enter the room. She was always asking how all of our children were doing and truly cared. She will be greatly missed. God Speed Sharon

My fondest memory of Aunt Sharon is the way she and I would call each other and always say “ I was just about to call you!” It seemed like we were always thinking of each other at the same time. She was a wonderful person, and my children absolutely adored her and all her positivity. She was always so happy and smiling when we had the chance to visit. She will be missed dearly by each and everyone of us. God speed Aunt Sharon and will see you in the after life. God willing. You were so Loved by us All.
