    I am shocked and saddened to see that Sharon passed. Sharon was truly a kind and giving person. Every time I’d see her throughout the years she was always the same sweet and sincere person I first met in 1975 when we moved to Eudora. Sharon will be missed.

    What can I say that would help except that you, Sharron’s family have been blessed beyond words. Sharron was my neighbor, like a mother, and I will never forget her. She and I had our and downs and may not have always seen eye to eye but beyond all of that, she was loving and helped me through a lot. Now she has been reunited with Runner, her precious dog
    Who was more human to her. Sharron will be missed and I will never forget her.

    Praying for us all.
