    Dear Jerry and family,

    So many years have passed since we were members of Hope United Methodist Church and under Rev. Littler’s teachings. I remember the year that you and Sharon helped Dick and I move into our new home on the Mulberry/Jefferson Rd. Was it you or Sharon that yelled out that Dick’s dad had put his hot pipe in his overalls and was “smoking”? I have so many, many memories of those years together. May God bless and sustain you with happy memories knowing that someday, you will be with Sharon. My prayers go with you and your families

  36. Carolyn and Dave Schulz October 26, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    Dear Jerry, Brian, Rob and all your families and Betty Jo, We are very sorry and sad about Sharon’s passing. She was an inspiration with her joy, humor and faith through her lifetime and the recent very painful time. She was such a loving person. She told me one time, as we discussed our mutual faith, that knowing how much God loved her brought so much joy and love into her heart that she was overwhelmed by HIS love. Her Celebration of Life video is a beautiful tribute to that love she sowed into her family. Our love and prayers are with you now and in the days to come.

  37. Diane Braswell October 26, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    Sharon was a class act. She was one of the sweetest, kindest, most caring people that I have ever known. After 60+ years of friendship, I will miss her smile, her wit, and her concern for others. Also, she was the glue that held our FHS class of 59 together. What an inspiration she was the past few years as she displayed such courage and grace. Thank you, Jerry, for sharing part of your life with us, and know that we are sharing your loss. My prayers will continue for you and your family during this difficult time.

  38. Mrs. Sharen Frantz Donath October 27, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    It was through cancer that brought you and Sharon and Don and me together and cancer that took our spouses. Little did we know how our paths really did connect! I will forever be grateful for our friendship. Continued thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
