Post a Condolence

Sharon and I worked together but became family. The four years she lived with me and my children left each if us many found memories of camping, geo cashing, camp fires and late night soul searching talks. Not to mention the antics of Spook living among us as well. Sharon will be missed but never forgotten. I am so grateful that we had the chance to connect closer than just mere friends. I’m glad Sharon chose me to be a friend that became family.

So many fond memories of hanging out and cruising around Belvidere with Sharon and the gang. Many a long night of never ending conversations around campfires, in garages and if needed the tailgate of a truck. Sharon not only bonded with us, but with all our Parents. Sharon may no longer walk on earth with us, but her spirit will always be in our memories.

Me sincere condolences for the Family. I met Sharon when I towed her mustang, then we became friends and I have a lot of great memories with her. She was an amazing person and a great friend. She taught me how to drive a stick shift.
