To say that I'm heartbroken to hear of this news is an understatement! Oh how much I loved Mrs Sharon! She & Mr Claude were like my parents too, bc my BFF, Beth always shared both of them with me. Mr Claude, Lisa, Scott, my bff, Beth, Wayne, Moms, & all of your extended families, you are all in my thoughts & prayers & please know that I grieve with all of you! I'll miss everything about her but especially the kindness that was ALWAYS showing n her beautiful smile that made her eyes twinkle! I am forever grateful for her sweet heart & soul that she extended to me as a little girl seeking refuge to her influence on the woman that I am today! Fly high Mrs Sharon, you've always had angels wings in my eyes!

On our annual trips to Welsh to visit Larry's family, Sharon was always among the first to welcome us. Larry and Sharon shared many childhood memories. We spent hours at mom's house sharing the year's activities and recipes. She showed a genuine interest in our family.
The more special the person the greater the loss and my sorrow for you is very deep. Claude, your children and their families; Lisa, Scott, Beth, Wayne; for Kathy and Nancille I pray that you will be comforted in knowing that her life of generosity, compassion and caring for others will be rewarded.
With my love, Arleen Doan

Mrs. Sharon was the first teacher I had the honor to work with as a paraprofessional at Welsh High School. She was so loving and kind. Perfect characteristics needed for SPED class. We had so much fun working with her. She still stayed in contact with me. Love you Mrs. Sharon and will miss your sweet smile. Prayers for your family.

We are so sadden to hear about our neighbor and friend's passing.
I now realize how SPECIAL our visits were while picking up pecans in the back yard, meeting at school to attend our grandchildren's class presentations, and just visiting while she and Ms. LUCILLE were "making blocks" on the golf cart.
Sharon was a heart warming person, so full of love for everyone.
To all of her family, Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Give us a shout if we can help in any way.
She will be missed!

Sending our love.
