My life was made better for having known Sharon. I had the privilege of doing her hair for several years.
She was always a sunny light with contagious upbeat energy. She was generous. She adored her daughters and talked about them often. She loved her friend Elizabeth and I thought of their reunion on the other side.
I am so glad to have known her and she has left a beautiful imprint on me and this world she left behind.❤
