Memories Timeline


  1. Alas, dear friend, my chief cheer-leader, my guiding star- you left us before I could say good-bye.

    The impact you had on my life was profound, kindly supportive as I tried to regain faith after some hard, un-happy, bitter times. I felt unloved, unlovable by God. You knew I struggled and patiently guided me to the reality that God loves all his children.

    And I valued your sense of humour, too, especially when after you resumed driving with a cracked rib or two. When I told you, you were crazy, you response deserved censoring , was to the point and carried the spicy message that you weren’t going to sit around doing nothing.

    I shall love you for ever, my friend.

    I hope you have been welcomed by hordes of angels.

    Your pal, Peter

  2. My condolences go out to Sharon’s family. My memories are going with her to a couple of gardening talks. The one thing I will remember about this wonderful woman is her smile and that laugh that was typically Sharon’s laugh. When I went to visit a friend at Elim Park who was there for rehab, I stopped to see Sharon and there was that smile and memory of the time we had spent together. What a joy and a privilege it was to be a small part of her life. Marvin Carley

  3. Heartfelt condolences to Sharon’s family. She was always so sweet and kind. She had a twinkle in her eyes and a genuine interest in asking how you were. Sadly, I hadn’t seen her in awhile having moved to Florida. I will remember her fondly and know she is now in God’s glorious care. Lisa Canas
