    Lewis (Marvin) and family: She is beautiful as always. Gonna miss her. So sorry for your loss. Her loss brings back so many fun times. When we were younger many times we would sit on the front porch and try to be country music singers, which always included Loretta Lynn’s “You ain’t Woman Enough To Take My Man” (and many more) Of course, we couldn’t miss listening to the Saturday night Grand Ole Opry on the radio. Now those were the fun days. I don’t know what happen to our singer career. Anyway, gonna miss that happen smile. Loved her so much.

    We are so very thankful that I got to spend a week or so with Sharon and Marvin a year and a half ago. We are cousins who did not even know about each other until a couple of years ago! She was a very special loving lady. My heart and prayers are with her husband and children as they walk through this difficult time. My God’s peace and comfort surround each of you.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Sharon Kay from I was a child. Momma and her were very close. She will be greatly missed. I pray that God will give you strength, comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding. That only comes from our Heavenly Father. May God bless each and every one of you in the day’s ahead.
