To all of Sharon's loved all are in my thoughts and prayers. Sharon and I worked at BRMC, she sat by me in church, many events. Talked about her love of family, the Lord and music. I would call and tell her when programs were on. She touched so many with her love and laughter. Please know she will never be forgotten and lives on in her family. The beauty she now beholds. Love and prayers ~
