I met Sharon while working with her husand Tom at Amoco. Sharon was one of these people that I just could not help but like. Sharon had an infectious smile and laugh. Sharon and her husband, Tom, were an absolute delight to be around. Always spreading joy and spreading warmth of heart where they went.

I am thankful to call Sharon my aunt. She was thoughtful, had a fun laugh, and always wore her large sunglasses. I so regret not having time with you these last 30 years. Uncle Tom, Tyra, Jack and Norma, my sympathy and love is with you.

Sharon was my second Mother when I was in my teens. I always knew she would be there for me, if/when I needed her. I am so sorry she is gone and wish Tom, Tyra, and Jack my deepest condolences.
