Sharon, you'll always be in my heart, and we'll all meet again in spirit. Your work here is done, and fine work it has been. It's for your family that remains to carry on your legacy of love and laughter, always keeping you, Mimi, Bucka, Bob, Robbie, Bill, Gerry and Big Grandma close in our hearts. This is not the end, it's just a blink in the meaning of life, and as my Big Sister, you're blazing a trail we must all take one day as we pass beyond the great veil suspended around us. Love, and GGWY, your little brother, Russell Alan

I met Sharon in 1955 when I went to live with Alice and Russell Bucy with one of my younger sisters - Darlane. We lived with them for several years. I remember Sharon very fondly - she was immediately my big sister - I appreciated her kindness, help and teaching. I liked it when her And Bob (Barr) took me swimming down at Kennydale Beach. I lost contact with her and the Family - sorry about that. May the Creator welcome Sharon with open loving arms. My condolences to her family.

I just learned of Sharon's passing from her cousin Valerie Copp, who is my close friend, and wish to express my sympathy to Sharon's whole family. Sharon was a high school classmate of mine. I have fond memories of riding the ski bus with her. We'd sing on the way home and Sharon knew all the lyrics to every song. My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting her a few years ago at her home in Arlington..
