    I have no idea what made me look for Mrs Sharon’s name, but I used to do civil war re-enactments with she and Mr. Bobby before I got married. He always used to tell me to find someone you can “ride the river with”. I still remember those words today as well as all the wisdom Mrs. Sharon shared with me. The world is a little dimmer without her in it now. Love y’all so much.

    Tammy, I just now saw your sweet mom’s obituary. I am so sorry. I had no idea!

    Tammy —

    We are so very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Lynn lost his dad just this last October and I lost mine almost 13 years ago but it feels like yesterday.

    Take it one day at a time until you feel like you have your strength and don’t let anyone push you or try to tell you to hurry up.

    I am deeply sorry to hear about Sharon and pray for the family. We had some good times working for the Rice festival. May she rest in peace.

    Sharon and Bobby, are old friends from our time together at Fletcher Emanual Church Alive in Lumberton. Bobby has been one of my prayer partners for over 25 years. Sharon is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful, faithful Christian lady and will be sorely missed. Praying for the family, Gary Osberg

    Dr Michael Layfield Fluitt and Janice Fluitt says:

    We are so sad that we have lost a beautiful sister. Sharon was a strong influence to anyone that knew her. My favorite memory of Sharon was when she would be dressed in very nice clothes, beautiful red hair perfectly fixed, then climb into a jeep and drive away. The jeep just seemed out of place. We had not seen Sharon in a number of years because we live in Louisiana. But, she was always counted as family as were Bob, her children, grandchildren and siblings. She will be sadly missed by those that remain to cherish her memories.

    Girlean McCall says:

    love and prayers for all of you during this difficult time. I haven’t seen or talk to ya’ll in some time, but you are in my heart always. When I was down and broken- hearted , Bobby, you and Sharon were there for me daily for a long time. There will always be a special place in my heart for ya’ll. Do not hesitate to call if you need anything

    Michelle Grooms(Fluitt) says:

    I remember how beautiful Aunt Sharon was when I was a child. Her beautiful red hair always curled and in place, makeup on, a smile on her face. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart. She will be greatly missed by all that loved her and called family, friend.
    I love you Aunt Sharon.
