Sharon and Floyd took me to church and back for a long time and we became special friends. We were at a meeting at a church function in Lake Charles once and I was having a hard time hearing/understanding the speaker. She took notes for me. At the end of the sheet, I wrote her a "thank you" message. She answered "Just call me your "closed caption". It was so cute.

Sharon was a wonderful cousin! I enjoyed our time together as children, then as adults when our Magehee Families would get together. My Mother, Myrtle, was one of Uncle Henry's younger sisters. I am sorry that I could not attend Sharon's funeral service. Praying the Lord's presences is especially real to each of you today as God brings comfort that only He can give! So very sorry for your loss!

A lovely picture of Sharon with a warm smile. I remember she and Bro. Floyd picking at each other all the time., so funny, they truly loved each other and we knew it. Sis Sharon is completely whole now. Heaven is her home.

Ms. Kressman, you raised a wonderful son, Joey. He and his wife, Laura, are good people raising a good family! I’m certain those values are part of your teachings. Deepest condolences to you, Joey and your family.
