    Sharon and I worked together many years at Univest, then Midland/PNC. We had a special working relationship that I will never forget. She was the best of the best. I know she will be missed by family and friends, but at the same time will be welcome in Heaven by all those waiting on her.

    Sharon was so much more than a coworker to me; she was a mentor, advisor, educator, fierce animal lover and advocate, and an inspiration to me in many ways. She was a sheep in wolf’s clothing; her bark had no bite. I will always remember learning so much from Sharon, laughing with her (sometimes through tears), and the occasional butting of heads. She was always right, dang it. Love always, Mary Margaret

    Jim, I am very saddened to hear of your recent loss. Please accept my condolences for you and your family. Remember, I am only a phone call away if I can be of any help in any way.

    Sharon and I worked together for about 15 years and she is the primary reason that we were able to get our system into production. She was extremely talented and was a good friend. Once when my family and I were making a trip to Branson MO from Atlanta when my kids were small we stopped at Sharon’s place on the way back. She gave my kids rides on her horse and I know they still remember it. My prayers are with her family as I know she will be missed.

    My heart goes out to Jim and Kathy> I met Sharon years ago at Sherwood Forest where we both boarded our horses. Sharon immediately took us under her wing. She made us feel at home and was eager to teach us so many things we thought we knew about horses and their care. We spent hours and hours trail riding, something I will never forget. Sharon and her daughter, Kathy introduced us to the Central Horse Show Association, where my sons and I started showing Quarter Horses and led to my oldest sons’ career of training quarter horses. I loved Sharon her passing makes me realize just how short life is. God Bless.,
