    What a special lady, I had the honor of meeting Sharon and making a new friend. An upbeat attitude, smile and laughter, these are the things she displayed when I came to see her. She was funny, kind and thoughtful. At every visit, she would tell me,I AM READY TO GO TO HEAVEN. My life has been blessed to have met her. GO REST HIGH ON THAT MOUNTAIN!!!!!!
