    Dear family, We want you all to know that we are praying for you. Although this is so hard for us now we have that blessed assurance that we can be together again in heaven forever more. Sharon made a choice to trust Jesus with her life long ago. The best choice any of us could ever make. That’s how we can say, death where is thy sting? oh grave where is thy victory? We love you all, Paul and family.

    To all the family of Sharon West, I give my sympathy. I worked with Sharon at Wilderness Trailer Factory in 1973-1979. She was always smiling, talking of your children whom she loved so much. She was a lot of fun to work with, a good person .

    To all of Sharon’s family: I am extremely saddened as I have just read her obituary & viewed the video. We are currently in Missouri, or I would have been there for the celebration of her life. I know, without a doubt, that she is in Heaven & no longer in pain. I’ll have happy memories of the many times she came to my house to pick up her Avon orders. Sharon, I will miss you. My condolences to all of you.

    Grandma, I just wanted to tell you that I miss you so much and think of you every day. There are times where I want to pick up the phone and call you just to see how you are doing and tell you about my day. Oh what I would give just to talk to you one more time and hear your voice…. People say with time it will get easier but for me it won’t ever get easier …. I’m just glad I can write to you even if its on here I feel more at ease …. I love you so much….
