How I remember Sharon: Fun-loving, hilarious, tell it like it is, generous and a dedicated friend. I had the pleasure of growing up with her in my life as my sister Kelly's best friend. I truly appreciated her humor and wit as I got older and hung out with them more often. Sharon always gave good advice and you knew you were always getting her honest opinion, she was never fake and was true to herself. I have several fond memories of Sharon, but one that particularly stands out is her kindness to my family and I after my dad's passing. She just got it. She had been there and she knew what to say and when to listen. She came to my parent's house one day (before all the services) in her pj's and hung out with Kelly all morning. Just comfortably being there for us while we were grieving. She helped us look through photo albums, but the most touching thing she did was bring us all journals (Kelly, myself and my mom). It was a beautiful gesture that really meant a lot to me... In the midst of hundreds of flowers and an enormous amount of food she managed to nail it on the head with the journals. Telling us it helped her a lot to write things down when she lost her own father and was very therapeutic. Sharon had a huge heart. Miss her very much. So happy her and Kelly got to experience a genuine friendship that some people never get. I consider myself lucky to have known Sharon and I will always fondly remember her. Much love to you Donna and the rest of your family as you endure this painful first anniversary. I hope these memories and words bring you some comfort. I hope she continues to bless you with beautiful signs showing you she's in a wonderful place. Xoxo
