I am so sorry to hear this. She was the clinical leader when I started night shift on the unit. One of the best person I have ever worked with. So helpful, friendly with a wonderful sense of humor. She will be missed.

Sharon's passing will leave an enormous empty place in so many people's hearts and lives - in many different ways. Time will eventually dull the pain to a numbness, but the love will always remain. God has a plan for each one of us and our lives are intertwined according to His plan ... I think of the sheer number of people who's lives Sharon touched, both personally and profesionally, and am blessed to have been one of them. May God's love, grace and mercy bring you peace and comfort always.
