    Our love and prayers are extended to the Family. Sharon was such a wonderful friend to have. Such a treasure! She loved Jesus and children among her love for animals. Sharon was always giving. It was her nature. And making people laugh. The woman was a riot to spend time with. Those days, along with her mischievous grin and laughter may be gone but they still ring our my hearts. Sharon touched many lives and ours are ever blessed and changed. Looking forward to seeing her in heaven... Our hearts are with you all. Jaye and Dana Wiggins.
