My deepest sympathies to the Kochel family in the loss of a lovely, loving, kind and caring lady. I met Sharon at HHPoole MS when I was a substitute and she was a paraprofessional. She always had a welcoming smile and a kind heart. She will be missed greatly!

Sharon you were an amazing person. You reached out to me after my mother passed away and shared your memories with me. I wish I had gotten a chance to reconnect in person with you. You really lifted my spirits in a difficult time. Rest In Peace Cookie. Say hi to mom for me.

Sharon I will miss you even though we haven't seen each other much in years. We had such good times in beauty school, we drove Victor crazy with our craziness and made his hair fall out, what a time we had. I wish I had lived closer so maybe we could have come to know each other as adults. I am glad you found Don and the happiness you deserved .
