I have so many wonderful things to say about my Aunt Sharon. Some of my oldest memories are of my Mom & us kids riding our little bikes over for her to 'fix up' our clothes so we were ready for school, church,explorers,etc. I loved going to visit Aunt Sharon and Uncle Ron in Tobermory. My Mom would sit and talk while we played with Barb and Linda. When I had my son she made a beautiful quilt for him. It was so comforting to know that she was just a phone call away for anyone who needed her. Thank you for some of my best childhood memories. I'm sure Aunt Sharon and my Mom are catching up like lifelong friends do, as they're watching us from Heaven. God bless.

So very sad to hear of Sharron’s passing. She (and Mr. Chappell) will Always hold a place in my heart. Thank you for always showing us kindness while growing up next door and then extending that kindness to my own kids when we came home to live with Dad for a few years. The kids still have the postcards you would send from Florida and talk of your kindness towards them. . Holding you all in my prayers.
