Sharon has been an inspiration to me and to many who had the blessing of having her in our lives. She welcomed everyone with open arms and loved everyone she came in contact with. She has filled my life with blessings and was truly a loving disciple of Jesus. It has been my honor to know a saint in my life. Keith, my prayers are with you and your family. God bless you all.
