Sharon’s boys were the light of her life and listening to them laugh with their father brought her so much joy. As a grandmother, Sharon thought the world of her grandchildren and enjoyed watching them grow up. Sharon also had an incredible bond with her sister Cathie. When the two of them spent time together there was no end to the amount of laughter and love they had for each other. They were best of friends their entire lives.
