At Jonesboro (AR) High School, Sharon was an exceptional student, an exemplary friend, and an inspiration to many of us.  Among her many honors, Sharon was voted by her peers as "Most Likely to Succeed". And succeed she did--at touching countless lives in myriad ways. I feel honored and humbled to have known her. Sharon's children and grandchildren should be very, very proud of her legacy.

She was such an inspiration. She will be in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones. May God give you strength and comfort knowing hers was a life well-lived, and she is at peace. Love, Barbara Hall
