I was saddened to hear of Sharon's passing. I had the pleasure to work with her through the elections. She was a pleasure to work with in those long days. We had some great conversations and laughs.

Sharon was such a light that always had a smile on her face every morning @ H2O Oasis and she will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace my friend.

I will miss your smiling face every morning @ H2O RIP my dear friend

Always smiling, singing, and scheming our next adventure. I will always love her spirit and...

I had the privilege of being AYC president while Sharon was the executive director, and she was among the most supportive adults in my life at the time. Her life and work leaves a vibrant legacy in Alaska and beyond. My thoughts are with her family.

Mi querida amiga,
Your bright light will never be extinguished from my heart and the hearts of all of those who love you.
Your "roomie,"
