I want the family to know of how wonderful Sharon was as a boss. We all know what a wonderful person she was and will always be in our hearts. But, I want to shsre that Sharon was always kind, positive and ready to support and assist at any moment of the day or night. She was warm and welcoming. Never did I see her express anything but support and encouragement. Not a quality possessed by many. She was one of a kind. It was my honor to know her. She and her beautiful smile and warm welcome...
