Dear Emmerth Family,

My first or 2nd year in Wheeling, Sharon extended a friendly welcome, and I still treasure a tiny parrot feather she gave me at that time. I now share your grief in losing her. The world was better because of Sharon being in it. I think she would have smiled at me concelebrating her mass. I hug you in my heart, as she does from heaven. –Mike

Rich & Greta & Family,

My sincerest condolences & prayers to you both and your immediate families.

I went to Central with Sharon – I remember her as being a very happy person – always a smile on her face. I know that you will miss her a lot, but I know that she is in a much better place now. Your family now has an Angel watching over them all the time.

Again, my sympathy and prayers to you all . . .it is very hard on all who are “left behind”, but keep your faith. Hopefully, time will heal this pain you are going through. My brother died at 42, which was in 1991 12 years agoand I think about him every day but know I will see him again one day & that helps me cope.

Prayerfully & sincerely,

Becky Murphy
