    I never knew any of Sharon’s family, but she made known how much y’all meant to her! And she made my boys feel like family as they grew up with her around the office. Blessings to you.

    Our hearts are broken for y’all; little did we realize when we last saw Sharon a couple of weeks ago, it would be the last time we would see her here on this earth; we have known Sharon since kids and she was a joy to be around - loved her sense of humor and her laugh; we all know where Sharon is - with her Lord and that gives comfort and peace; she loved her family dearly - y’all have wonderful memories to bring you comfort; so glad you sisters got to go on that trip this year! Will be praying for y’all! Love, Wayne & Aggie

    Sharon's smile and love will continue to radiate in the lives of her family. Always a kind word and support for Ray and I all the years we went to Pine Grove Baptist. A treasure to all.

    Dear Allen and Family
    Sharon was definitely a treasure. We knew each other for many years. I loved stopping by her shop on 460 seeing what was new and fellowshipping. She always had a smile and a story about one baby or the other. We will all miss her. God Bless You in the days ahead as she is watching saying "Carry On".

    With Sincere Sympathy,
    Emmie Cook
