I miss you so much Mom.

Every time I saw Sharon, she was always smiling. I didn’t know her well, but know her daughter, Jessica. Such sweet hearted people. My heart goes out to Jessica. She was very close to her Mom, and was such a wonderful daughter to Sharon. Jessica’s son, James, was crazy about his grandmother, as she was him also. Jessica’s husband, Rudy, was so good to Sharon. They took good care of her. I know this family will be lost without her and I pray for God to give them comfort and healing. My deepest sympathies to Jessica, Rudy and James.

I want to express my condolences to the family and especially little James - one of the sweetest little boys I’ve ever met! I know Sharon was a strong person and supporter of her family. She made an impression on everyone she met. God bless all of you. Pam Gorman
