Dr. Sharon will always be my very special Dr. Aunt Sharon. Starting from young child, I remember Sharon always inviting me into her life. It was thru those invitations I received her unconditional love, spirit, encouragement, and guidance that has positively influenced and impacted me personally throughout my life. Not only did I get to be a part of her home life but I lived next door to Sharon's VERY first Veterinary practice in Jackson, MI. Whenever I could, you would find me at her practice yearning for the chance to “hangout” with Dr. Aunt Sharon and her animal world. I will forever have those special hours in my heart when she allowed me to follow and stand next to her in the office listening, and admiring her incredible knowledge and passion for animals. She fed my appetite for animal knowledge and most of all expanding my love for animals. I was heartbroken when she moved to Traverse City, Iowa, then further to Alaska but I knew there were greater needs in the world who needed to share Sharon's special pioneering efforts in Chiropractic Animal Medicine and of course many family she dearly loved. Despite her geographic distance, she was always there to selflessly listen to my life crisis phone calls, always putting me to ease and back on the path with her infinite offering of loving wisdom and guidance. I always desired to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine however, somewhere I changed paths into human medicine and completed my bachelor's degree in Nursing but my passion in my Nursing career has it roots deeply seeded by Sharon's influence. I have admired Sharon throughout her career pursuits and for good reason, she was indeed one incredible special lady. It has taken a long time to sign her book because somewhere I still held on a false belief that it could not be true, not my aunt Sharon, she was always so brave and was just too tough and death had no business thinking it could take her on. However, I stopped and listened closely one day, and now I know, she is still hear in my heart and still here right here with me when I need her most, still guiding me with her loving spirit.

I knew Sharon when she worked at Palmer. She was a blessing.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting or training under Dr. Willoughby-Blake but I knew of her through my mentors. I have benefited from her training through training from Dr. Rivera at the healing Oasis, who acknowledges Dr. Willoughby's contributions to veterinary medicine in his lectures.

I wish I'd had the opportunity to meet Dr. Willoughby, I understand being a pioneer in introducing new treatments to a stubborn medical community. Her pioneering efforts were not in vein, there are many of us who have incorporated her teaching and healing into our practices who understand her sacrifice and think very highly of her. My success is in some ways really hers, and I understand and appreciate her for that.

I was blessed with the opportunity to study with Dr. Willoughby in the early 1980's while I was a student at National College of Chiropractic, in Illinois.

It was through Sharon that I was able to connect my two greatest passions in life ~ animals and hands-on healing.

While my career has taken many twists and turns over the years, I am finally returning to my roots and the love of working with animals again.

As a result of an online search this morning, I happened to come across her obituary - which took my breath away.

Thank you, Sharon, for all your good work and for pioneering a connection between chiropractic and animal health/wellness.

You are greatly missed by us all ~ large and small.

May you rest in peace, with love.

I met Dr. Sharon Willoughby 0ver 20 years ago through the American Holistic VMA of which I was a founding member over 20 years ago. I had already studied under a number of DC's, DO's and Holistic healers prior, but I found the training Sharon promoted through the AVCA to be extremely organized and informative and a huge boost in my work with animals, large and small. I just heard of her passing today as I was attempting to reconnect with her after being out of touch for far too long... My sincere condolences to Sharon's family, clients and friends... I know Sharon will be missed by so many people and animals. I also know Sharon will be with many friends (human and animal) on the other side. God Bless Dr. Dana Waer

I didn't know Dr. Sharon, but am sorry for her passing because there are too few who help to heal and relieve the pain our fur people suffer. Her work will continue because of those she helped.

She saved our dachshund, Max, from a painful life. When others chose to just medicate him, she treated him with great tenderness and care. Max went to heaven 10 years ago. We know he was there, with the throng of those she healed and helped, to greet her joyously. God gave mankind dominion over the animals, and she used that authority in an exemplory way. N. L.

I have known Sharon from the early days. While I chose homeopathy as my modality, I have been so thrilled to have chiropractic care available to my clients and students around the world, largely because Sharon had a vision, committed to that vision and made it a powerful reality in the world of animal health care. Reading these wonderful kudos reminds me to tell people now that they have made a difference in my life. Christina Chambreau
