Sharon was a wonderful and generous woman who was like another mother to me, and my brother and sister, Marc and Jaclyn. I was so fortunate to know her and have her as part of my family. I could never thank Sharon (and Howard and Makaila) for welcoming us into their family those many summers ago, and for the comfort of knowing that from then on, whatever came our way, we’d be covered as a family. Sharon, I love you and I miss you, and thank you for being you, for sharing your life we me, and for making me a better person.
Sharon will greatly be missed. Condolences to the family.
