To Sharon's children, I want to express my sincere condolences. Your Mom, just like your Dad was such a nice person, I loved chatting with her at family gatherings. She always made me feel welcome. I am so sorry you had to lose both your parents so close together, but as all of you have expressed, you know she is with her true love Tom in heaven and resting in peace.

Aunt Sharon was such a sparkle to my childhood. My mother’s older sister always had a way to make us feel loved. She (like her sister) was so strong, beautiful and sweet.  So many memories of Christmases and family gatherings.  I will miss her!

Love you- Tommy, Laurie, Susan, Sharon, Benji! (And your families) xoxox
