Sharon you were such an amazing sister-in-law know that you are loved and missed. It is my prayer that Sharon knew the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, the Lord Jesus Christ! Revelation 21:4 4 hHe will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and ideath shall be no more, jneither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
