Shanna & Shawn, I worked with your mom at the Courthouse & enjoyed not only working with her but visiting about our families. My thoughts & prayers are with you both
Sharon was my sister-in-law but my sister at heart. We started our lives together as young wives and mothers. We worked together for nine years and became even closer during those years. I was heartbroken when she moved to Arkansas but was happy for her and Steve to be in such a beautiful place. I will miss her every day of my life but I’m glad she will be at peace with Steve and Dale, her mom and dad and her grandson. I love you, Sharon, Linda
