I miss you Mom, Every Single Day. Since your passing , I realize what has been lost, or should I say,taken from us. With a mistake from the hospital, to lawyers lying to me, and even the fact of last will and testament, that was not followed through as you instructed, all seems to be nothing , compared to living with the loss of you. I try to keep your marker clean and trimmed and set to expectations. I had a few battles with the cemetery for stealing item from your grave. I miss your love, companionship, wisdom,smile,cooking,trust,generosity,caringness,vibrant attitude,and just glad to be alive demeanor.

It has been just a few days past 3 years since you left us suddenly. I realize how powerless we are as to thinking we can make a difference as everything was corrupt with the care at McKay Dee Hospital Center ,as they did a very good job hiding their negligence ,while we all depended upon them and their professional stature of health care. You left all of us with no warning and we all know it was not by choice. I will never forget the moments we shared at the hospital after your stroke ,when I arrived at 1:00 am ,as I was awakened by something and felt you were alone and I got there as fast as I could and to find you lying there awake and wondering what was going to happen with you,when you saw me and your eyes lightened and opened wide with love and you had me get up on your bed with you and we were able to telepathically communicate by looking into each others eyes. It was an experience I'll never forget and although I had to break the silence by letting you know out loud ,that you were the best mother anyone could' have ever wished for or wanted and how your unconditional love for me was never doubted or absent in my whole life and even when I was wrong, you still believed in me and was there for my defense and support. you taught me how to be a human being and it is difficult to live with what I see now after the fact that you are gone, but I finally get it and I wish you were here to tell you ,that I understand and you are right and always were. I know at times I thought I was smarter than you and I thought you didn.t know this or that and now I realize ,you always knew! Thank you again for being such a good mother and letting me see into your soul ,as I was the son of the most decent human being ever put on this earth . You were the most giving and had the largest heart with the warmth of love that anyone could ever endure and I am extremely proud to say I am your son . I will never get over your loss and never will I learn to live with it. I never knew how many things leave this earth , when someone you love leaves. the list will go on forever and ever ,so I will not write it.. I miss you

Chuck, Kim, and Kelly,I was sad and shocked to hear about Sharon's passing. I worked with her for many years (1984-1996), as both co-worker and her employee. As a co-worker she was always willing to help others, offering her great knowledge and experience. As a manager, she was a great mentor and teacher. Sharon was a lot of fun to work with. I enjoyed her wonderful sense of humor and beautiful smile. She had lots of great stories, and her love for - and pride in - her family was evident.My heart aches for you in your loss!Louise Hudson

To Sharon's family: Sharon and I worked together at IRS many years ago, but her fun personality always made our breaks and lunch so much fun. Losing a mother is not easy, I know, but hold on to the great memories of your will help you get through tough times. I wish you and your family the best; stay strong!

Kim and Kelly, I am sorry to hear about your mom. Sharon was a good person and always treated me like one of the family. She will be missed.

The most I remember about my mom is that she supported me every moment of her life,(meaning , she was behind me with everything ,in my life).She had love and happiness oozing out of her all the time. She was also the backbone to a lot of great people.She was very opened minded and never passed judgement on anyone as far as I remember. She was funny and a wonderful cook. I loved her with everything I got and I am sad to see her go with so many things left to do .She wouldnt want anyone to cry over her ! but I still do.

I am so sorry to learn of Sharon's passing! We sort of fell out of touch after we retired, but I always considered her a good friend. Kim and Kelly, Brad sends his condolences also--he lives in CA now. But all of us knew and loved your family--you are all in our thoughts at this time. Be there for each other--it helps get you through the tough times . Our love to you now in your time of remembering your sweet mom.!
