  2. I have so many fun and fond memories of summer swims at Aunt Susie’s. As a kid I remember thinking she was so pretty and cool! She was fun, sassy and always smelled good!! Haha Wish we could have gotten to spend more time together. Love you, Aunt Susie, you will be greatly missed.

  6. Sharon, I will be forever grateful for your encouragement to become a part of the special education department at George Gervin Academy. Your support and inspiration helped me to become a better person than anything I could have imagined. Rest well sweet lady, until we meet again on the other side

  7. Auntie was like my second Mama. Her home was always a place filled with joy and laughter and a safe haven from life’s storms. The memories of sunrise church service, summers of crafts, swimming and fried chicken in the park are most cherished. I’m incredibly grateful for her example of kindness, patience, compassion and love. Rest in God’s glory and shalom my sweet Auntie

  8. CandleImageSharon and I worked together from ‘99 til ‘05. She was my friend in every way. She loved my children and me. I have missed her since we both moved into our teaching careers but I have never forgotten the love she poured in to my family and many others. She had a kind heart and I know she is watching over all of us 💕.

    Love, Alice Powell-Brown, Kashe’ and Timothy

  9. It is difficult for me to articulate the moments, memories and laughter that play through my mind when I think about my Nana. Sweet moments are etched in my brain forever, like painting her toenails in the living room, painting on the back porch, watching old western movies and listening to The Bee Gees in the car. Then, small moments are blended artfully into my image of her, like her reading glasses and her smile, and how she always left a stain of red lipstick on her straw. She was obsessed with Betty Boop and she didn’t like the song Big Girls Don’t Cry, because Big Girls DO in fact cry.
    One of the very first people in my entire life that encouraged me to be creative, believed that I could make great things and was so proud of even the smallest form of art that I crafted, was her. Being at Nana’s house meant that you were going to be loved, and I will never, ever forget that feeling.

    My fondest memories include you, forever. I love you, Nana, and I hope that you remain with me as long as I continue living. I cannot fathom a world without you in it.
    I miss you every day.

    Love Valori Kaye
