    There are no words that I can say in regards to your loss but if there were, it would be to take away the pain, I would send them. I have loved Sharon since I was 5-6 yrs. old in the good and bad moments and I shall miss her wonderful presence. My heart goes out to all of you and I know you all know how great she was. I too shall miss her very much. Please know, that I am thinking of you all and may the great memories of Sharon keep us with warmth in our heart. Bless you all and may great memories be there for you after your mourning… has passed.

    I knew Sharon since she was little. She and her family lived across the alley from me.
    She was always a good kid.
    So sorry for her passing. God Bless.

    Although you were really my cousin, I will always remember you as Aunt Sharon. Just Like your sister, my Aunt Barbara. Unlike my Stasewich relatives, I did not get to see you enough in my childhood. But, next to my Aunt Rita, I always thought of you as my funniest aunt. Maybe that’s because my best memories of you and Dale and family were those times at your dad’s camp! Along with my mom Luella, you were the life of the party! Hope you and Jim, Luella, Martin, Dorothy, and the rest of the family have some more great parties in heaven!

    Dale, my condolences to you and your family. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. God be with you during this most difficult time.

    Dale, Brenda, Amy, Joel and family.. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great friend and classmate .. Sharon will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.. May she rest in peace..

    Sharon was such a wonderful, loving lady. I have fond memories of her throughout my life. She always was there for everyone, especially as my grandmothers closest friend. She will be sadly missed by all. Hugs and prayers to the family. ❤

    Uncle Dale, Brenda, Amy, Joel & family, sending my deepest sympathies for your loss. Aunt Sharon will be sorely missed by all. She was always kind to me and a great host to all, either stopping by for a visit in town or at camp. I wish I could have been there for the services. My thoughts are with you during these difficult times.
