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.

Rest in peace Donnie…
Maureen Ellen Sternfels (75) passed away peacefully, Wednesday, September 25, 2019. She was born February 11, 1944, in Buffalo, NY, a daughter of the late Edward and Ellen Makey French.
A beloved mother, sister and friend, she is preceded in death by her sister Kathy Jones and survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Rene and Zac Grimaldo, sister and brother-in-law, Judy and Patrick Kelly, brother-in-law, Don Jones, sister and brother-in-law, Michele and Dan Burger, and brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Laura French, all of whom she loved deeply.
Maureen was a graduate of Nolan High School and attended Arlington State College. She retired from banking after 40 years, during which she established lifelong relationships with coworkers and customers. Spending time with family and friends along with shopping were her greatest enjoyments. Later in life, she learned to crochet and quilt. Considering her love to socialize, it is no wonder that she adored collecting butterflies. Meeting and helping others became her passion. She was a “mom” to staff and residents alike, at the Mansfield Medical Lodge where she lived. Her caring nature and loving spirit will be deeply missed.

A Celebration of Brandon's Life will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, June 29th at Feragne Villa, 755 Midcities Blvd., Hurst, 76054 followed by a gathering welcoming family and friends.
Brandon was born October 14, 1982 in Fort Hood, Texas to Robert and Karen Lucas. His ability to make people laugh showed itself at a young age. As a child he enjoyed playing on the little league baseball team his father coached. Brandon was proudly called “Buckshot” by his dad. Throughout his life Brandon excelled at football, aggressive inline skating, competition fighting sports, and was just an overall athletic person. He attended Martin High School in Arlington, TX and was known by most as simply “B”. He was a loyal friend and would always have a smile waiting for you no matter how long it had been since you had last seen him. He was a giving person, even allowing many of us to claim his mother as our own (Momma Karen). He was always concerned with the happiness of others around him, maybe that is why he was always so silly...he just loved to see us smile.
Brandon met the love of his life in Meghan Hopkins. They were married September 4, 2015 in Troup, TX. Brandon and Meghan shared so many beautiful things together, they loved being outdoors and sharing sunsets. Creating things together was a shared passion. They often enjoyed art, music, dancing, going to concerts, or painting a canvas together...just being together and being young silly and in love. They made yearly trips to Pensacola FL, and at a later date Meghan will spread his ashes where Brandon said, “Heaven meets the earth”.
Brandon is survived by his loving wife, Meghan; parents, Robert (Bob) and Karen; sisters, Lindsey, Stacy and her husband Larry; nieces, Cherish, Daisy, and Chloe; mother-in-law, Trena; father-in-law, Kevin; 3 sisters-in-law; 4 brothers-in-law; aunts, uncles and extended family; numerous friends and 4 fur babies. Though we are devastated by our loss we will always honor “B” by trying to find the humor and fun in life like only he could. So try and laugh through those tears. We will see you again one day, bubba.
For those wishing to send flowers or memorials to the family, please have them delivered to the Feragne Villa.
