  1. Onward Christian soldiers! Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the foe; Forward into battle, See, His banners go! Cousin Sharon and Sister in CHRIST was truly a Witness and Soldier of the Cross. She signed her Spirit-filled messages with JOY (JESUS, Others, You). Her Soul was anchored in the LORD. She kept her mind and her heart stayed on JESUS. She is done with the troubles of the world, she fought the good fight, the only fight that matters. Terry, Jerry and Family may you take comfort in the Promises of GOD, and in his Peace that passes all understanding. Love, Lynda G. Jones (Wheeler Jr’s daughter) & Family

  2. Well done your were a good and faithful servant until the end. We shared Sunday School lessons and prayed together on many occasions even a week before you were called home. This I know for our Bible tells us on December 30 you closed your eyes to this world and immediately opened your eyes in your prepared place in the arms of Jesus Christ. I will dearly miss you my friend, my Sister in Christ!!!

  3. Sharon was my best friend. We have known each other over 40 years. She was so good to me and to so many others. Sharon was the kind of friend you need in good times and in bad times. She prayed with me, mourned with me, and laughed with me. She was a sister in Christ, Sister friend, and my sister, period. She took care of me, my son, and my mother. She was always there. I will miss her dearly. I will miss her like crazy. Rest in the arms of Jesus, Sharon. I love you Janice and Winston Williams. .

  4. My deepest sympathy and prayers to Beau and Terri and your family, As you know Sharon has been my friend over 40 years and my fondest memories of her is that when I came to Wheatley Heights Baptist Church she befriended me and also became my son godmother. And we have been friends every since even when I moved to Colorado and was gone for 10 years and then came back we remain friends and she’s pretty much always been in my life. Now she’s gone to be with the Lord.but she will be forever in my Heart. Beau and Terri I leave you with the Scriptures. The Lord is close to the Brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit Psalm 34:18, also, Well we believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him Thessalonians 4:14. May God wrap his arms around you and the entire family and give you peace we love you all and are so blessed to have known Sharon love always Glenda and Bobby and Robin.

  5. We were only able to visit in person a couple of times but Aunt Sharon took the time to get to know Drake and us. We were so appreciative, she was a true blessing. Prayers to the family.

  6. Aunt Sharon was a very sweet lady. I really enjoyed sharing stories with her about our nursing careers. It was a pleasure to meet her. Sindy (Bishop) Vazquez
