It was a little over two years ago that mom had the surgery to remove as much of the tumor from her brain as they could get. It's hard to believe that it's been that long yet in many ways, it feels like it was just yesterday. I miss you every single dad, Mom! Lucky for you, you left your footprint on our hearts in the form of many memories. Oh, and you left us some great stuff that I see daily in our home - afghans, artwork, pictures, etc. I love you, Mom!

It seems hard to believe it has been two years. I know she is happy with DEE DEE and watches over you and Violet every day. I pray she watches over me too with my struggle with Parkinson's Disease. Memories are important to me especially now and I have many with you and your mum and dad. Love ya.

Tara, I think of your mom often and laugh and cry at so many memories of our time as friends. She had such an infectious laugh and big smile. I hope you have peace knowing she is watching over you and Viiolet. I hope she is watching over me too in my difficult time. Love to you always and prayers for you both. Tawny Owl. (J)

No words can ease your pain. Keep wearing purple and keep smiling in her memory! God bless you and comfort you.

I wished you a happy birthday a few days ago, but I believe that this is the anniversary of your real birthday. Home with the Father and with your besties, what a better celebration could there be. Miss you and love you always.

I still find myself sharing stories of Sharyn and her love of "purple"!!! Her smile still shines brightly along with her wit and pride in her girls - Tara and Violet. Thinking of all of you with Love...
Posted by Tara Hunnicutt on 26th October 2017
Today is weird. It's the first Oct. 26th without mom to call to wish her a happy birthday. This Saturday will be the first year she will miss Violet's birthday party since she had moved to CO. I miss her every day but somehow my heart pulled me toward wearing purple today so she should be smiling about that!
Posted by Barbara Jernigan on 26th October 2017
My dear, dear friend. Today is your birthday and you are in a peaceful place with family and friends. We sure miss you and think of you each day. Our prayers now are that you will always be watching us and laughing at our attempts to get through life without stubbing our toes too many times. Our love is always with you. Our love is always with Tara & Violet, too, as you watch over them. We will see you again, dearest Sheri.

Tara - I know how hard this day will be for you. I miss my mom everyday but trust and know that your mom is always with you. Hugs!
Posted by Tara Hunnicutt on 17th October 2017
Violet's birthday is 10/18 (tomorrow) so this is the first year that mom won't be here to celebrate it. Last year, she and Joe made it to Violet's birthday party on 10/22... then a week later, she was gone. When I think on it, it is still (to this day) quite surreal. I miss her everyday.
Posted by Tara Hunnicutt on 19th March 2017
3/19/94 will forever be etched into my mind. It is weird to not have Mom here to call or text to see how she's doing. However, like you said Barbi, I know she is finally with Dee Dee (Melody) and they are celebrating together instead of Mom mourning like she had for over 20 years. It is actually a relief to know that this March 19th, she is finally HAPPY.
Posted by Barbara Jernigan on 18th March 2017
Another day and I'm thinking of you. Today we are remembering a sad day, but you are celebrating a reunion. You and Melody and Randy are together, and we will see you again, someday. In the meantime, we will continue to love you and laugh at the same old stories. My dear, dear friend. Sure do miss you.
Posted by Barbara Jernigan on 24th February 2017
Hi dear friend. I have been thinking about you a lot lately. Everywhere I turn you are there with something you have given us. Daily I use the blanket to warm my legs. Nightly I smile at Precious Moments. You will remain with me always and I will see you again in God's heavenly embrace.

Here's to my beautiful friend Sharyn. We met in 5th grade & although my family moved to N. California, we remained in touch over the years. I was so happy to see her when I visited S. California & grateful to have spoken to her by phone, our last call being on her birthday this year. A few years ago, Sharyn sent me a copy of a photo of us with Davey Crockett & his sidekick at Disneyland. I had to laugh because I still have my copy of that same photo. Sharyn & I went to Disneyland when it first opened. We turned those tea cups as fast as they would go & giggled at how our white socks & clothes would glow in the blacklight on the rides. When we were kids, we sang a lot together. One of our favorites was "Sisters." I will miss my sister, Sharyn, the rest of my days.

Sharyn "with a y" was active in WMWA widows group and was always cheerful to be around. She was a support to Joe DeMers in his cancer treatment. Little did he know that their roles would be reversed. He gave her many good times and she loved her jewelry gifts from him. We will all miss her but know she is safe now. My husband also died of glioblastoma in 2000. They have a special place in heaven.

Tara, I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. Looking at the pictures, the loving tributes, and knowing you, I'm sure she was a remarkable woman. Our hearts are with you and your family.

I met Sharyn only about three years ago when she moved to Colorado to be with Tara and Violet. Right away, it was obvious that Sharyn loved the color purple!! Right!!??? When I think of Sharyn, I “see” her smiling face and laughing eyes; I hear her chuckles as Joe tells me another one of his great jokes or stories. About a year ago and over the course of a few months, I spent a lot of time with Joe and Sharyn… I saw the love they shared and the sweet, thoughtful things they did for each other. I listened as they told me of road trips in Joe’s Vette and showed me gifts to each other. I looked at their pictures of places visited and memories created. Together, they planned for their home and future. When I visited Sharyn at the Rehab Center, she made it clear to me that she’d love some chocolate! With my second visit came a basket of a variety of chocolates! She dove in immediately!! I’m grateful that I met Sharyn and was able to share time with both her and Joe. I know you know, Tara, what a special lady she was… that Violet knows what a special Grandma she had… AND how proud she was of both of you and that she loved both of you Very Much. Thinking of YOU…. Love & Hugs…

I've not seen Sharyn in many long years but she was a very sweet young woman and it's apparent she remained a lovey person, wonderful friend, mother and grandmother. May you all have the peace and comfort of our loving Heavenly Father. until you are able to be together again. Jamie Atherton Niekamp

Tara, So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. May God grant you comfort and peace. I didn't know she was an alumni of Azusa High. I was 2 years ahead of her. Take care and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Sending you love ❤️God's blessings, Sandy Hunnicutt Terpko

Tara...I was so sad to hear about your mother. After high school we would occasionally run into one another, and later we settled in Charter Oak, where we once again ran into one another. We would talk about friends, but mostly family...oh how she loved her family! I'm truly so sorry for your loss! My prayers are with you and family.
Posted by Barbara Jernigan on 4th November 2016
Tara Fond memories of how Sharyn's Mom and Dad welcomed me as a son when we were dating. They taught me how to play pinochle-many contentious games with Mom losing patience with Dad's stretching the rules. I will always remember your mom's child like enthusiasm for anything and everything she was engaged in. So much fun. Know you are comforted by our Lord and Savior in your great loss. Sincerely Jim Jernigan

Tara, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. Your family was special to me. They will always be missed. You will be in my prayers.

Tara I'm so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure working with your mother for a number of years, at Badillo elementary school. She was a joy to work with. I will always remember her smile and her laugh. She would read to the kids and I'd turn into one too with the wonderful stories. She taught me how to crochet, which I do often and at times I can hear her say "Sylvia your tensions to loose or why are you still tieing knots" a big no, no in her crocheting world.. She talk of you often and how much she loved her girl, I lost contact with your mom.. But thought of her often especially when I finished an afghan. My condolences to you and your family

She' joining her beloved daughter Melody. My son George loved Sharyn and Melody back when he was in Kdg at Badillo school. I knew Sharyn for many years as we sold Avon together before working at Badillo. Tara my prayers are with you know God loves you.

Im so sorry, sharyn was only the 2nd person i had met after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in the 90's. I remember going to badillo to fill in and telling her how nervous i got from driving a different route to work that day, it was pouring rain and there were still flowers on arrow and glendora from an accident we heard a few days before, it was then she told me her story, we hugged and cried and from that time on we hung close whenever i worked over there. I will forever think of her as i alrea fy do wvhen passing that corner or badillo elem.
Posted by Erin Pettigrew on 3rd November 2016
I only met Sharyn once, but knowing what a great person her daughter Tara turned out to be, Sharyn must have been pretty amazing too. I'm so glad she was able to spend the last few years being closer to Tara and Violet. Hugs to all of you.
Posted by Joan Kelly on 3rd November 2016
Tara, So many fond memories of your Mom and family. May you and your family share the love that your mom gave to all who knew her.
Posted by Beverly Downard on 3rd November 2016
I remember Sharon as being very sweet and friendly, she was very popular but when you were around her she made you feel like you were her best friend! I will miss her smiling face on facebook!!!!!
Posted by Linda Allen on 3rd November 2016
I've known Sharon since 4th grade. Such a sweet, loving person. Prayers and hugs to your family, I will always remember her beautiful face and smile.

Thinking of you often, Tara! I didn't know your mom but do know she raised a pretty spectacular daughter, so that speaks volumes to the type of person she was. -Sandra

I remember Sharyn so well, she was such a good person, and always treated me with such dignity. I wish I could have known her in our "grown-up" years, but I'm betting nothing ever change. I can see in my memory as clear as it was yesterday walking home from school with our books in our arms, and stopping off for ice cream at her house, before I finished the walk home. I will never forget those days. You will be sorely missed. Thank you for the great memories.
Posted by Lisa Wright on 3rd November 2016
What a wonderful way to capture your and her friends memories. She had a beautiful smile (thank you for sharing it with us) and she will continue to smile upon you. The heart does go on. Look to your heart she will always be there. We are sending you strength and wrapping you in hugs during this difficult time. Please reach out if you need anything. - The Wrights

I am so sad today to hear the news about Sharyn's passing. A flood of memories hit me -- wonderful high school times shared and loved. We didn't see each other often after school, but always fell back into our friendship easily. I know how excited she was to be moving close to you and her grand baby Tara. I'm happy she was able to have that time with you. My thoughts and prayers are for you both. She was always special -- and will remain special in my heart. God Bless, Darlene
