My heart is sad for your family. Sharon was a very special sweet lady. I served several years with her in the Portland temple. She will be missed

I was shocked to open my newspaper this morning and see the obituary for Sharon. I worked with her in the Portland Temple and our lockers were near one another. I grew to love her a lot. I will miss her cheery face and her loving words. I hope she did not suffer. I did not know anything about her health since the Temple has been closed for so long. I am sure that she is at peace now.
