Sharon was one of the most godly – I was going to say women, but that is incorrect – people, man or woman I have ever had the privilege of knowing. My wife just commented that she radiated Christ’s love. Short, true, and to the point.
I am not sure why this sticks in my mind, but while living there, I had misplaced something in the house and was, in my normal type A mode, frantically searching for whatever it was. Sharon noticed, asked what was wrong. She then suggested we pray that I would find it. We did, and a few minutes later I found whatever it was… I do not remember what I had misplaced. I do remember Sharon’s gentle suggestion that we pray, and the results.
Sharon left us this morning. She went into the presence of Christ at about 11:30 Mountain Time. I got a text from Chuck about that time. She and Chuck have four daughters, three are married. There are, I think, five grandchildren, they were all able to say goodbye this morning.
Sharon is not famous. She has not written books or been on the speaking circuit. But, she has had an enormous impact on the lives of countless people. She entered the presence of Jesus hearing the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
