I am so sorry for your loss. I was so very fortunate to have Sharon as my classroom neighbor for the past 14 years. To talk to Sharon was like talking to a best friend. She would tell her stories of her family especially her beloved grandsons. She offered support to all of her fellow teachers and her students loved her dearly. I always enjoyed our talks of our Gamecocks thru the good and the bad. And when our conversations would end, you walked away with a smile just knowing she was a part of your life. I will miss Sharon dearly.

I am in shock over the untimely passing of my long-time dear friend. Sharon was such a blessing, always so nice. I have appreciated her friendship since we met at Mid Carolina. I will always appreciate her kindness toward our daughter, Amelia, when she was doing an internship at Mid Carolina. She would encourage her and offer her comfort when she was having difficulty. If I can say one thing without a doubt, she loved her family and was very proud of you. May the many fond memories of a life that was well lived in service fill the hole in your hearts left by her departure. Our thoughts, prayers, and love are extended to you. I shall miss my friend.
