I have many years of great  memories with Sharon and your family, Larry.  I have loved her so much, and feel the loss terribly. She loved your kids so much, Suelyn, and talked about them endlessly. She will continue to be your family's guardian angel. I know She rests in God's arms. Hugs to you all.

From the day that Kevin and Suelyn said  “I do”  Sharon and I have been friends.  We’ve laughed together.  We’ve cried together. We shared adventures.  I have so many wonderful memories.  One precious time was being “Flower Grams” at grandson Luke and Olivia’s wedding.  Loved all the family holiday gatherings.   We were all family.  My prayers go out to Larry and her caregivers, Randy and Jackie. Also to her family, Suelyn and Kevin and Vaughn. .  She loved God and  she loved you all.  May God wrap his arms around you at this difficult time. Love and Prayers v
