    Sharon was a caring and wonderful person. She was so proud on being a grandmother and loved her kids. I was one of the lucky ones who knew her when we were very young working at Bell of pa. (at that time). We had so many good times. She made me laugh with her humor. Going to the grove and spending vacations with her. We always said OH we have to get together again but life situations always got in the way. I will miss her. Love you Sharon Rest in peace. I have my memories.

    Joe and family - My deepest sympathies on such an untimely passing of dear Sharon. My prayers for your family - Abba Father, You hold time within your hands, and see it all, from beginning to end. Please keep and carry these precious people in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest, and their minds sound sleep.
