    Sharon always carried a great smile, sage advice and the best potato salad in the world. She is truly whole and at piece in the arms of her Lord Jesus today.

    Sharon was Beautiful inside and out.  Her smile and love for her family were visable to everyone who had been blessed to have known her.  I had the pleasure of knowing her through her grandchildren both at Elk Run and   Poyner Elementaries.  She will hold a special place in our hearts.

    I will always remember Sharon with love!  She was my boss at AIC and taught me so much.  May she rest in peace and we will have her family in our prayers.

    I will remember Sharon as being very involved in her grandchildren's education and the lives of her family.  She was a beautiful lady and radiated that love where ever she went.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.  You have a beautiful angel watching over you.  Much love to all.

    Sharon will be remembered as a beautiful,  kind Christian woman. I loved to hear her sing at church. She was devoted to her children and all her family. My prayers are for all of you to feel Gods peace surround you. She is in the arms of Jesus!
