    Our deepest condolences Gary, Heather and the rest of Shari’s family.
    Shari was something very rare – a genuinely kind, generous and loving soul. I was lucky to spend time with her through work, cats, friendship and sorrow. Her sunny disposition, sharp wit and unflagging desire to help others was always an inspiration to me. Shari was in my thoughts often since I moved and she always will be – she was one of the special ones.
    Sincerely, Yvonne

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Looking for the Sunrise

    I’m not looking for the sunset, as the swift years come and go; I am looking for the sunrise, and the golden morning glow, where the light of heaven’s glory
    will break forth upon my sight, in the land that knows no sunset, nor the darkness of the night.

    I’m not going down the pathway toward the setting of the sun, where the shadows ever deepen when the day at last is done;
    I am walking up the hillside where the sunshine lights the way, to the glory of the sunrise of God’s never-ending day.

    I’m not going down, but upward, and the path is never dim, for the day grows ever brighter as I journey on with Him.
    So my eyes are on the hilltops, waiting for the sun to rise, waiting for His invitation.

    To the home beyond the skies.

    Albert Simpson Reitz, June 1953

    Our deepest condolences Gary, Heather and Family.
    Shari was remarkable woman. She had one of the biggest and kindest of hearts. I feel so greatful and blessed, to have had the opportunity to know Shari. She was amazing, even when Kare-bear and I found some mischief to get into. I never heard her raise her voice. Shari will be deeply missed by all.
    Heartfelt thoughts, and prayers to you all.
    Much love. Shelly.

    Shari will be sadly missed by all those who worked with her at Superstore. She was always very kind and considerate. We loved her sense of humor and quick wit. It seems a bright spark has passed from our midst.
