    So sorry to learn of Sharon’s passing. The last time we talked, she reminded me of being in her wedding and was reminiscing about that day wanting me to visit and look at the photos again. I am sorry to say, I procrastinated too long and that day didn’t happen. I will, forever, be saddened about that. Please know that you are surrounded by a fellowship of love and may God grant your family strength during this difficult time.
