Sending Love and Prayers to Gary and the family. Sharon was truly a very SPECIAL LADY, touching the hearts and lives of so many people. Sharon was full of Love and Life!
I have fun memories of when we went to Illinois visiting family. She was always eager to please and was an awesome cook.
And when she lived in Colorado for a short time it was a joy to be around her and Gary.
I will always continue to have many happy memories and look forward to seeing her again when God brings us all back together again.
