Very sorry to read the loss of Sharol. We had never met but were friends on Face Book. I was named after Sharol's mother. I know she will be missed.

Very sad to read this today 8-12-19. I know this is a hard time for you and I will be praying for you. Grieving takes time when you lose someone you love. I lost John January 9, 2019. I still feel very lost, but God is walking with me and I will be ok and you will be too. You will never get over it you will, just learn to live with it. May God bless you and your family.
