Sharon was a wonderful elegant woman. No matter how busy she was at City hall or Walmart she ALWAYS had time to look up and acknowledge you with that intoxicating smile and a hello! At Walmart or TAMC ( where I worked) I was privileged to get a nice big warm hug from her. She is and will be missed by MANY! Rest In Peace
