Post a Condolence

We are so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful lady Aunt Sharon was, inside and out. In talking with the kids, we remember her loving spirit. She always made everyone feel loved and cared for, included and wanted. She made the simple everyday things special and made them into memories. I loved her sense of adventure and her sassiness. She was one of a kind….. she will never be forgotten! She will always hold a special place in my heart. Always. God’s Peace! Love to all! Kenalyn

I’m so very sorry. I will miss Sharon and the fun times we shared. There was always lots of giggles and stories. I was so honored to get to pray with Sharon to receive Jesus! I will treasure that and Her forever. Much love Shari Kasper

Bob
We were so sorry to hear about Sharon but we have peace and joy in knowing that because she was a believer in Jesus Christ, she has gone to a place where there will be no more death, or mourning, or crying, or pain. A place of explainable beauty and peace.
I am sorry that we did not stay in contact with each other over the years and remember all the good times we had as kids on the farm. Live in the good moments Bob, until we all meet again, in heaven, where we will be united with Sharon.
Your cousins
