    David and Family,

    You have my deepest sympathy and many thoughts and prayers. Shari was a wonderful woman! I worked with her at HSC and she was always upbeat and so friendly. I enjoyed riding along when she took patients for appointments and discharges. I hope and pray that you find comfort knowing that she is in Heaven and reunited with her parents and Chris. She was an angel on earth and definitely an angel in Heaven now. God bless you all during this difficult time!

    Shari’s premature passing was indeed a big loss & very sad! Before Shari’s advanced illness, one of the always fun anticipations of each Christmas season was receiving Shari’s cheerful, creative, dependable, informative, & upbeat Christmas card & greetings! Nevertheless, seeing or visiting with Shari at any time of the year was always a positive & uplifting experience! Deepest of sympathy & prayerful support to Dave, her siblings, nephews, nieces, other close relatives, and Shari’s very many friends.
