I loved Sharon! I am one of the Assistant Principals at the school in which she worked, Christiansburg Middle School. The talks we had, the hugs we gave each other, and the smiles meant everything to me. I would go into the kitchen to check on her and the others and she always would put my mind to ease, because she was always "alright." It will not be the same without her. Her loving spirit and her love for others will be missed and my heart feels broken that she is gone, although I know God knows best.
May the family find peace as you accept Gods' final decision for Sharon to be with him. Love and blessings to you all.
