I still can't believe that Sharon is no longer with us. She was a free spirt, funny, sweet, caring, smart and an all around wonderful person. One of the things I will always remember her is her laughing and making jokes.

We have all lost a truly beautiful person who gave us so much and added to our lives as a rare friend through good and difficult times. I am so ever grateful for her understanding, support, kindness and generosity, traits that she shared with so many others throughout her life.

We will miss your many acts of kindness, your friendship, and the way you cared about and nurtured all of us in the nonprofit world much more than yourself. We were shocked and saddened that this happened far too soon, but also hope that your spirit knows what a difference you made in our world.
