    Sharon, we loved you and we'll miss you, but we're glad you are at peace now, free from pain, and we know you are with the Lord, who you loved so much. We'll keep your family in our prayers.

    RIP Aunt Sharon I have very good memories growing up with you and I loved you so much. As we grow up we all go our separate ways, but I will keep thinking about all of my good memories at grandma's house and when we lived with you while my dad was overseas. I remember those dance parties in your basement. Thank you for all those times cutting my hair and us talking while that was done. I remember you pulling out that one false tooth and showing us kids. I love you Aunt Sharon Ron Jr
