I have some of the fondest childhood memories of spending time in Rudy with Sharon, and all the family! It was like being in a different space and time; a time of joy, peace, love, and so much fun and adventure! I loved, loved, loved her spaghetti! It was always so awesome to see her and Curt with all the kids and there was always a house full. You all brought them great joy! I know this is a difficult time for everyone and I am praying that you all find peace in knowing she is resting with the Lord and may you all experience His peace that surpasses all understanding and that only He can give. Thank you Sharon for all the love and great memories!

My Aunt, she was one of the most loving and caring people in my life. She loved her family more than anything.
She was always there for any of us, no matter what we needed, or to just set us straight !
I will miss her for the rest of my life until we are reunited.
I have the comfort of knowing she is at peace, in heaven, and reunited with so many of our loved ones.
I love you and Thank you for always being there for me, wether I was in the area or thousands of miles away.
I will miss your sweet smile ,your hugs, and your words.
Forever you are in my heart as you have been since the day I was born.
Much love,
Dawn
