    I am so very glad that Sharon and Stephen got to come and stay with us when we lived in Alaska. It was a wonderful time to get to know Sharon. She had a joyous spirit and an infectious laugh. I love her for loving my brother and being such a wonderful mother. All things work together for good. We look forward to seeing you again, Sharon!

    I thank god that I was able to spend time with you one last time. You have been a such a big part of my childhood and adult life, you made huge impacts on me as a child and on my son and you were very much like a mother to me. We will miss you until the day we meet again. Your children are such a resemblence of you, your spirit shows in them and will be a constant reminder of your beauty. I will miss the talks that we had but I find comfort knowing that you are no longer in pain and that you are watching over us. I truely feel that I was blessed that you were a part of my life and I will be forever grateful. Love, admiration and respect, Tania

    I was so sorry to hear about Sharon. She was my very first boss and I learned so much about good work ethic from her. She was a wonderful person and had a great sense of humor. I have thought about her (and the rest of you) so many times over the years. You are in my prayers.

    Mom, I already miss you more than you can imagine. I love you and i am glad you are free from the pain you were going through. I want you to know what a good mother you always were. Nothing seems to be the same today without you in this world. I know you are in a better place watching over us now. You will always be alive in all of our hearts and i see pieces of you in my childrens eyes. I love you and i will see you again someday. I know you will be waiting. Tyler and Hana love you and miss you . God bless you and take care of you!! Love your son john

  5. Dan Sadler on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Mom, There are no words to tell you how much I will miss you, just as there were no words to explain how much I love you. I want to thank you for being my rock and picking me back up every time I fell. I won’t feel complete without you. I promise to keep you alive in my heart and memory. I promise to lean on the values you taught me and if I do that, I won’t ever need to wonder what the right thing to do is. Thank You for always being there, I love and miss you.

    We will always remember your smile and wonderful sense of humor. We could laugh about anything. Coffee and French Vanilla will always remind us of you. Sitting around a campfire and just enjoying the stars, crickets or whatever. Friendship was all we required. We love you Sharon and will never forget you. You are our treasured friend and now one of God’s angels.

    What will I do without you Mama? As each day passes, I will miss you more and more. You weren’t just my mother, you were my best friend. I loved caring for you. I’m so thankful that I was able to give back to you some of the care you gave to me for the past 26 years. I miss you so much! We were together almost constantly for the better part of this past year. So what happens now? I’m trying to stay strong Mommy, but it is just so hard. I already miss you beautiful face, your voice, your scent. I know you were only a temporary gift. Thus says the Lord in Isaiah 43 ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are MINE’. You belonged to God before I ever called you Mom. Your life wasn’t your own. You were meant to carry the Holy Spirit, and you did. I’m sure you were welcomed with open arms. I don’t know what your doing right now, but I know where you are. I hope you are dancing in your new perfect body. Every day where you are is a thousand years here. I know it will be but only a minute before I see you again. But that minute is so much longer where I am Mom. I’ll do my best to be the daughter you were so proud of. I can hear you now saying ‘Amy Lynne, you take care of your daughter’. I will Mama, I will. I want to thank you for being my mom. Thank you so much for wanting a little girl so badly. I will forever carry you in my heart. I know I will see you again, and I cannot wait. I told you before you went I wouldn’t be sad for you, I’d be sad for those you left behind. I meant those words Mom. I promise you, I will carry on your work of bringing our loved ones to know our Lord. I will live my life with strength, dignity, and respect just like you taught me. I still don’t know how I will do it without you but I must press on. Mommy, all that I am I owe to you. I love you with every fiber of my being. Life will never be the same without you. Your heartbroken daughter, Amy Lynne

    While on line reading the obits I noticed your name sharon. Although we did not get to say goodbye to you, I am sorry for that. You have taught me many lessons in life professionaly and personally till this day I use. You were a very strong lady I always envied that about you. I hope that you are at peace. From what I have read you deserve it. I will pray for your family over this time of mourning.

  25. Michael & Sherry LeBlanc on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am
