Words can't express enough of Sharon. Kind hearted, giving until it hurt, love of the little ones she taught, along with older ones in her Community Group. She loved making things for people. I will cherish what she has made for me. She was very crafty in all that she made. She cared for the sick, especially her beloved husband Robert when he was so sick. She sent out so many cards, birthday, anniversary, get well. It goes on and on of how generous she was. She loved God and know she is at Peace. We will miss this dear sweet lady.
