There's an angel in heaven who spread her wings far and wide here on earth for all of us who were fortunate enough to have her in our lives. She shared her laughter, her warmth, her kindness, her compassion and she left us with lasting memories. The fun times, White Owl and The Imposters, kayaking down the Kennebec, spending time together at the cottage on East Grand, walks along the Rail Trail, numerous motorcycling adventures, good times just being together, our last hoorah on the beaches at Bradenton, the list of memories goes on and on. Thank you for being one of my very best friends, for being part of my family, for loving chocolate and always knowing where to find the Lindts, for loving us as much as we loved you. You're in our thoughts and in our prayers. God bless you. You're our angel. (I expect you'll be holding the gate...giggle giggle!)

I know you were at peace and ready for your journey to heaven. It is the ones left behind who will miss you. I will always remember the adventures we had growing up. There weren't many vacations that we didn't spend together. We grew up and married our Navy men. Rick will always be part of our family. Soar with the angels now, no more pain. Love you

Aunt Sharon, I can't believe you're gone. You have been so strong, so full of grace and kindness and love and laughter and light. The world is still turning, but it's not the same without you. From my start, you've been another parent. You've been an inspiration. You've been family.
i have so many memories, and none of them are bad. You invited me into so many wonderful adventures and projects. You played with me and supported me. You spoiled me in the best ways. And you made me see things in different ways. I'll always associate certain colors with you, certain art styles, the feeling of being so drenched by rain and then turning the experience into a celebration of comfort, and of course, frozen m&ms.
I miss you so much already that I don't want to accept it's true. But I know if there is a heaven, you're there. Mom says you're holding the gate open for her. I hope you're basking in sunshine and peace and comfort. I love you forever.

I know you will always be with us, but I still just miss you so much. And I'll miss you forever.

I don't need to light a candle because you lighted up life all around you. Now you are showing the light to Jesus that He gave you. He can see that it will shine brightly for those you have left behind. So sorry, Rick, nothing will be the same, but i think the same light shines for you.
I'm not saying this well. Everything i picked up or watched today seemed to be a tear jerker and made me more aware of how much I will miss Sharon.

Dear Rick,
It has been so many years since I have seen you, but I saw the loss of your wife through mutual friends on facebook. Just wanted to let you know I am very sorry and my thoughts are with you. Sue (Sainio) Edwards

Almost 29 years ago I had the good fortune to buy the house across the street from Rick and Sharon, the best friends and neighbors anyone could ever hope for. Sharon, since my first week in that house you have been a friend, confidant and support system, always there with a helping hand, a kind word, and a good old fashioned giggle . You exemplified love, especially for family and friends...and critters. You have given us all so many wonderful, fun, silly, and beautiful memories for us to forever hold on to. Even in illness you were the picture of strength and grace, and love. I love you like a sister and always will. Rest in Peace my dear, dear friend.

There are no words that can fully express my feelings. You have been a constant in my life no matter how far I ventured. No matter what I have ever needed, even when I did not know I needed anything, you have been there - my Aunt, my Godmother, a friend, a listening ear, a cheerleader, a supporter ... You have always believed in me even when I did not. You have always been a bright spot in my life. 

You are truly the most loving, the most giving person I have ever known. You are also one of the few people I've never been able to get mad at - whether jumping on me in bed in my teenage years (after noon) to wake me, or calling me at 6 a.m. in California laughing that you woke me! I will forever miss you, love you, and strive to find the positive in every situation, as I saw you do. You are and have always been my idol, my hero, my angel. I love you and a piece of me is with you now in Heaven.

Banking with Auntie

May 31, 2017

First of all for context - as a child spending nights at Auntie's house, brownies for breakfast was not forbidden.  At points during her chemo treatments, Auntie no longer wanted chocolate - this was definitely a sign of the illness.  

I went back to Maine in December of 2016 to visit her - at this time she'd just started eating more ... and liking chocolate again.  I'll never forget sitting in her car to take a work call while she walked inside the local bank.  She had been feeling well therefore I was not watching closely or oncerned.  When she got back to the car however, I was shocked - in her hand was not cash but a bag of malted milk balls!  Who, other than Auntie, would manage to buy malted milkballs at the bank?!!!
