  4. Kevin, Nancy and Family;

    From our family to yours, we wish you and your extended family all our deepest sympathy and support. It was great getting to know Sharon as she had a wonderful wit and was always positive and upbeat about life's curveballs. I am sure my Mom greeted Sharon in her new life and that they are sharing stories of youth, growth and understanding. As always, if you need anything or if we can be of help or service, please do not hesitate to call on us. May your mother rest in Peace until you are all reunited with her energy again one day!
