Heaven got a feisty one in this lady. I remember you girls when you were so young and growing up on ballfields. Your mom and I had many good times playing on Replay. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. She will be deeply missed by all who got the chance to meet her.

Hi Sweetheart,

I know this will get to you in heaven because I asked God to allow you to hear my heart and what it's saying right now. Oh honey, I miss you so very badly and wish you were here with me. I know you are in spirit I can feel you. You will never have to suffer again darling. You fought long and hard and now the fight is over. When you reached heaven Thursday I know God awarded you and all the Angels in heaven cried because the most beautiful Angel was welcomed to heaven with loving arms. You will always remain my loving wife and when I get to heaven "Baby" you and I will be reunited for eternity. I promised you I would love you in this life and I will still love you. Until we meet again my precious loving wife. All my love sent to you in heaven. Your loving husband Shannon

Dear Shannon, Angel, and family,
Words are so inadequate at a time like this. I am sorry for your loss and wish I could be there to show support. Please know that all of you are in my sincere thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and the months ahead. Sharon had a heart of gold and went out of her way for others. She came to Virginia to be with us when we needed her. Now she's sitting in Heaven telling fishing stories and jokes with Ma (Celine).
Hoping all of you find comfort in God's word, "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord".
May Sharon rest in peace and rise in glory.

I only met Sharon once but I was impressed by how loving a person she was. One could not help but like her. I know that the family will always have the wonderful memories of her to help ease the pain of their loss. We also receive comfort from the Bible knowing that death is likened to a sleep that from which loved ones will be awakened (John 5:28,29; 11:11-14, 23-26).
