    We are so very sorry for your loss…….Sharon and I go back to College days as friends/roommates at Illinois State—I loved her outlook on life and am still in shock on hearing of her passing. Asking the Lord to keep all of you close to mind and heart as you continue to adjust to the gaping hole she leaves and praying HE fills it with even more of His Love and Light. As only HE can—
