    The first time I met Sharon I knew she was the right person for my brother.. From that time on she was the sweetest, kindness and most loving sister-in-law. She loved her family very much and could see all these qualities in her. Everyone in her family loved her just as much. We had such good times on holidays at her house as well as the lake and a lot of good memories come from the times we had at the Lake house where her in laws lived. She will be truly missed by me as well as those in my immediate family. She is in no more pain and in no more suffering. Rest in peace Sharon, until we meet again.
