Sweet sister, daughter, mother, granddaughter, cousin, aunt, and friend. We love you. We miss you. When we stop and remember that you're not here in the world with us, a tear forms...a throat tightens, but more than that, a joy swells within us, because, we know that you're out of pain and both filled with and surrounded by, the overwhelming joy and complete love found in God's presence. You were so brave these last few years....but then you always were. You walked forward through life, taking the path as it came to you. Accepting and working through difficulties and enjoying the good times to the fullest. We each treasure the private memories that we have of you, as well as those occasions when we all gathered as family. You loved well! You loved everyone. Accepted anyone. Because it was your nature...and without planning, agenda, or aforethought, you were the hands and feet of Jesus more than most. Even during your time in hospice care, you cared for those around you with love and selfless generosity. We will all join you soon Sharon....but not before you get Mom to your self for a while ❤ XOXO Bon voyage... ....If you would like to honor the memory of Sharon, remember to take the time to see your loved ones, family, and friends. Don't wait until it's too late to enjoy life with those that you love.
