Prayers for Mrs. Sharon's family during this difficult time.


I will miss you my friend.

Melinda McNeer Wisnoski

I just found out about Sharon's untimely passing. My heart is heavy, and I am filled with emotion as I recall a wonderful and
faithful friend. I loved Sharon dearly, and I want her children, grandchildren, and brothers to know that she touched my life
in so many special ways. I pray for a blessing of peace and strength during this time for all family members. She will never
be forgotten.

Karen Rodgers

Sharon will be missed.  Always a class act! Wonderful, loving lady!
Trust in The Lord with all your heart and
lean not on your own understanding; in
all ways submit to Him, and He will
make your pathway straight.
