    Dear Luanne, Susan, Becky and Brian

    My heart goes out to all of you at this painful time.

    I will always remember your mother as a free
    spirit, fun loving person. Thanks to her I have some of her spunk in me.

    She was always so kind to me and gave me great advice on life, which I remember to this day.

    For that I am eternally grateful.

    She is at peace and watching over all of us.

    Love your cousin,

    We send to you, your spouses, and children our warmest, sincere, comfort at this time. Your mommy gave us a helping hand many times in her life and I will always think of her giving all she was able to assist us. As my older sister she surrounded me with love and respect and was always forgiving when mistakes where made. I loved her, and always will for the remaining days of my life.

    Dear Luanne, Susan, Becky, and Brian:
    On behalf of the Taylor kids on the west coast, please accept our condolences on the loss of your mother. She was definitely a spit-fire of a woman, which is what you had to be in that family, and she has several things to be very proud of — including all of you.
    We will be sending something to the hospice in her memory.
    Gather strength from those who surround you and take comfort in the love you receive.
    Love, your cousins, Liz, Chris, Mike, Anthony, and Patrick, plus your aunty Linda.

I do want to let you know she had a special place in my heart. She made me both laugh and cry she gave me strength when I was down. She opened her home for me to live. Her love for life and others was beyond, her sense of humor, her love for her children and strays like myself. Her never ending forgiveness. She was full of encouragement and lots of never ending love, for this she will always be in my heart and prayers because I Love you Auntie Sharon and one day we will have some good laughs again with love and respect from your Niece Lisa xo

  7. Dear Luanne, Becky, Brian & Susan. I knew and loved your Mom Sharon dearly. I know how how much you will miss her. What a woman!, giving birth to 6 children. Please know that she is at peace now and in no pain. Thank God for that. Sharon was really a unique individual, who took life for all it was, raising all you kids on her own, yet never missing a chance to party, have fun, be fun and funny. The term “live, love and laugh” surely applied to her and her lifestyle. She also had the gift of physical beauty, of which she passed on to all her kids, and you know that is undeniable, all you 6 first kids, and all the grandchildren are all so beautiful. LuAnne, you were always the apple of your Moms eye, she loved you so much. I suppose it was because you were the only living child that was not in the west of Canada. Sharon had a personality of a true individual, with carefree ways, happiness abound, loved and loving, kind yet far from taking any nonsense from us mortals. God would have loved that, for I’m sure he takes the same views in this worldly plane as he does in the next. And last but not least, though Sharon may have had her share of struggles here, she met them head on with dignity and grace and admirable defiance. For that, I know she is placed and embraced by the spirits and the Lord above us, and will me sorely missed by myself. Lu, Becks, Brian, and Suz, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Keep in mind you not only all share her good genes of beauty, but her humor, lust for life, acceptance of what will be, will be, and so it is, and so Sharon will live on in our hearts until we meet again.

    My deepest condolences,

    Kim Seguin

    May God richly bless you all and may Sharon rest in peace.

    Love Kim.

    We were able to meet Sharon through our daughter (Sandi Lacombe)and were always impressed as to the really true and dear friend she was (she would certainly have your back in any situation!)When we were able to visit her, even in her severe illness, she still had that beautiful smile and had that humor. She knew how loved she was when her dear family and friends stayed with her every possible moment till the end. May God Bless each one of you and comfort you at this time until you meet again with Sharon in her Heavenly Home.
    Our Love and Prayers/Charles & Bev. Kroeker
