Please accept my sincere condolences to the family and children of Sharon. I’m so sorry for your loss. Sharon was a wonderful person and she had a love for her daughters that she was forever vocal about. I have known Sharon for about 8 years and had a great relationship with her. She didn’t mince words and had a heart to help those less fortunate.
