I'm so sorry to hear about Sharon. She was truly extraordinary . I 1st met her when Todd was moving to FL. Sharon insisted on teaching me to line dance. The music was blasting, we sang, laughed & danced like superstars for HOURS! I was only 21, but her energy well surpassed mine! I will always cherish that night.
Since then, every time I saw Sharon she was happy, smiling, full of life, positive & a joy to be around. She was Mrs. Fashionista & Impeccably dressed. It was exciting to see all 10 fingers adorned with her newest glitzy bling! I always looked forward to their summer visits as it I loved seeing Sharon & Dick & knew it'd be a blast. Sharon was a wonderful person, wife, grandma & especially mom as evidenced by her son, Todd. He was gifted w/ the infectious, magnetic personality of both his parents & their generosity & love shines through Todd.
My deepest condolences & sympathy to the family. Sharon will be missed by myself & many other, but her memory will remain in my heart & cherished always.
