  1. Vida and I are so sorry we were not able to attend in person but want to wish both families our heartfelt condolences. The service was beautifully done and absolutely loved the poems by Brenda and Katherin and others. Sharon was that rare light you occasionally find in a world full of darkness and evil. We will miss her dearly but celebrate her release from the mortal bonds of humanity to enter the world of God. Her journey is just beginning. Katherin your mother would have been so proud to hear what you said about her. So very well spoken.
