Very sad to say goodbye to Aunt Sharon. I will rejoice in knowing she was strong in faith and now no longer struggles with the burdens of her earthly body. My memories include a woman strong in character, morals and faith. A woman committed to her husband and family. Personally I will always appreciate her guidance, her frankness. Aunt Sharon never sugar coated anything, she was a straight shooter, honest and direct a trait I loved about her. I can still hear her laugh, a genuine deep throated laugh, able to appreciate humor and dish some out also. Aunt Sharon you will be missed, I only wish I could have spent more time with you growing up.
