I was a classmate to both Sharon and Darrel...two of the sweetest people I ever knew. Sharon and I were little girls together..I remember once being amazed that she shared that she had an aunt who was only 3 years old! We both came from large families tho I only remember Sharon and Carolyn..and how beautiful they both are. Dimples! Sharon was always soft-spoken and feminine. Her eyes! Ever laughing eyes! Sharon has been on my prayer list for some time..and she remains..I feel like she is safe now, back in Garrels' arm and God's hands. I am sorry for our loss but happy for her freedom from loss and pain.
