Reading Sharon's name in the obituary section of the Courier this morning brought on a river of memories. We had such good times working at Benefit Plans, and remained friends after our departure from there. Kevin was the glimmer in her eyes from his red hair. She was a kind lady, and never turned away a stray. Although we lost touch through the years we always sent birthday & Christmas cards. Heaven definitely acquired another angel. My thoughts & prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Sleep in peace Sharon.

Bill and Kevin, my heart aches for you and with you. Working with Sharon years ago and remaining close to her afterward was a blessing to me. She was "Mom" to me for many years. I can remember spending time at your house and attending activities for Kevin with her. She was a special lady and i will always love and treasure our friendship. I'm just sorry it has been a few years since i seen her. She was never far from my thoughts. You are both in my thoughts and prayers. I pray you can find some peace and comfort in this difficult time. I will miss her! Love you Mom

Dear Bill & Kevin, my deepest sympathy to you and your families in your loss at this time. She was a dear friend to me and a working colleague, We really had some good times together, which included our trips to Dayton to get pizzas to bring home to our freezers. I know she loved her dogs and cats and of course Notre Dame. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sharon was my next door neighbor. She was a very friendly lady and I remember how kind she was after inviting me in one day when I knocked at the door.
My deepest condolences go out to all the family, and especially Bill. If you need anything at all, please don't hesitate. My thoughts and prayers are with you and may God help dry your tears and bring happy memories to your thoughts.

Our heartfelt sympathy to the family in Sharon's passing. You all are in our prayers.

I enjoyed getting to know you and Sharon over the years at Warner when you were making your vehicle choices as well as just visiting when you came for service. In just the few years I have known her, I knew that Sharon was a kind, loving and caring person. May God bless you all and keep you in his loving hands.

We will miss you more then words can say. Sharon and I met on Pogo (game site) many years ago and we hit it off from the get go. We had so many things in common, it was unbelievable. We know you are up there looking over everyone because that is what kind ladies like you do. Rest in peace my friend.
