Aunt Sharon, it's so hard to believe this happened. Mom and I were devistated when Gloria told us the news. Mom was "just" talking about lunch, like YOU were!! You are loved by so many, and will be missed greatly! Tami

I share her love of the little black dogs and feel a loss for someone so kind and generous....this is our loss on earth,but must be a gift to so many that wait at rainbow bridge. Godspeed and mercy Sharon, to you and those you leave behind

I only know of Sharon from visiting schipperke rescue sites. I lift up the homeless schips in prayer, that they find a forever loving home. My prayers are with your family for your loss. I would do anything to save my schipperkes, and losing Sharon is a terrible tragedy.

We met Sharon for the first time at Judy & Peter's Schipnic about 10 years ago. It was a pleasure knowing her. Sharon was a special lady & will be dearly missed.

Sharon will be greatly missed. We knew her as a kind and loving person, entirely devoted to her little black dogs, some rescued, some loved by her from their first breath. I know she was met by a joyous pack of pups in Heaven.

I knew Sharon from an online Schipperke group but had not met her in person. She was so down-to-earth and had a great faith in God. She had immense creative talent; I have many art pieces and magnets she made. I will treasure these for the rest of my days. Sharon, I hope you are surrounded by a sea of Schips and their love. To her family, know that she touched so many people here and that she will be missed by all.

I have not met Sharon but knew about her love of Schipperkes and families. She was a real computer geek better than me! I love all of the magnets that she made and they are still on my fridge. I'll think of you.
You will be sorely missed by all of us.

Sharon will be sorely missed - her intense love of her Schips, her generosity with her talents and donations for rescue fund raising, her warmth and affection for all those around her. I feel privileged and fortunate to have known her. I know there are now fewer Schippies at the Rainbow Bridge and many salutes were given as she passed over the bridge with her precious ones.

I have known Sharon's sister, Gloria, most of my 58 years. Back in the 1960s, Sharon would come to Little Rock to spend the summer with Gloria. During those summers, Sharon and I spent many hours together having fun and sharing our obsession of the Beatles. My heart goes out to her family and especially to Gloria.

We were family since we had pups from the same litter, Rio and Specka. Sharon will be missed at the Schipnic's, those clever magnets on the fridge that she created for us. Gretchen Brindle

Sharon and I after dinner one might in Arkansas.
Sharon was so full of life and loved her dogs unconditionally, would help anyone that needed help and was friends to a lot of folks. her artwork hangs all over my house .. she was loved by lots of folks as well, and will be missed.
I am sure she has reconnected with her dogs that went before her and having a party there.
God bless the family that is left behind and that they may heal quickly.

Rio my gift to you.
You and I go way back. A shared love of the small black schipperke dog bonds so many of us together. But you were more than that, you were my best friend. Our laughter, our tears, but the last voice you heard that day was mine saying "I love you now get your butt to a safe place."
I watch the storm chaser report and video, the chase that took it straight to your house. My heart waited with hope, but I knew even then you were gone.
Kindness, laughter, love and determination are words we all used to discribe you.. but the best was FRIEND. An artist, a computer geek that sat up half the night to help me fix my crashed computer, you were always there for me. What will I do now?
I will treasure your gift to my soul and try to live up to your expectations of my dog training skills. After 19 years of working SAR dogs I could not come to find you. I know you will give all those hugs to the 3 fine SAR dogs who wait at Heavens gate.. and someday you'll hug my neck when it is my time to reassure me as you always have.

Go FIND! and with laughter, tell Connie and T how much you love all those "Boggs Doggs".. and remember to come touch the earth for us now and then.

Miss you so much.. see you tuesday.

We to met Sharon at a Schipnic. She was one of the most friendly persons I have ever met. Saving her Schips was first on her mind. After all they came first, in a situation like this. May God bless your family in their loss, that is also felt by so many.

I met Sharon at a schipnic many years ago; in fact, she might have been the first schipperke person I met. I never forgot her warmheartedness for everyone, schips and their people, too. My condolences are with her family, may God bless you and give you peace, knowing that she is in a place filled with joy beyond our understanding.

Sharon was one of the most kind-hearted people I have been lucky enough to meet. She was a very giving and beautiful soul. Her love of dogs shows what a great spirit Sharon had. I can still hear her saying, "Hiya Peoples!" She will be missed very much. My deepest condolences to Sharon's family.

Sharon, I didn't know you well but know how much you adored your family and how much you truly loved your Schipperkees. You lit the lives of so many hopeless and homeless Schips and gave your very life trying to keep then safe! A selfless act that God will not forget. I'm sure that there was a big commotion when those that we had all lost saw you coming and we can all rest in knowing that you will be there to greet all that come from here on. Rest well Schippy friend!

To Sharon's family, there are no words that will ease the grief and heartache you must feel. To have known Sharon through her art, her love of schipperkes, esp my curmudgeonly boy Lance, is a blessing that death cannot take away. My heart hurts alongside those of the Dodd family and may we always remember to follow the example of what a good, kind person Sharon gave us. Til we meet again, dear lady...

Sharon, you have been a wonderful loving friend ever since the first time we "connected" and talked. We shared a lot of conversations that I will remember always. You have always been wise, kind, caring, giving, loving, and a bright spot for me when there was darkness in my life. I have "Gator" in my life thanks to you and I adore him. I learned from you and you showed me what God's love is like. I thank you with all my heart for being a friend to me. You made me feel like a good person, but you, my friend, were always "special and the best."

Our deepest sympathies to Sharon's family. We knew Sharon through her love of schipperkes. There are a few more new stars in Heaven now and I know that my angels, Woody and schips Tough Guy, Frostbite & Teddy are romping with Sharon at the Rainbow Bridge. Godspeed Sharon and may her family find comfort in knowing Sharon touched so many lives, with caring & joy.

Sharon was one of those special people who always put other's needs before her own. A fellow Schipperke rescuer and someone who was truly kind to humans and animals, she will be very greatly missed and leaves a great legacy of memories behind with those of us who admired and loved her.
