Memories Timeline


  1. Until I see you again my dear "Sista"… You will forever hold a special place in my heart – not only because your sister and I were best of friends but because you and I also shared a special friendship. I will miss our visits and the hours we shared comforting one another during difficult times. Who will be there to comfort me now? Sadly, within the past 4 months and one week, I have lost two very special ladies in my life that no one will ever be able to replace. Rest in peace my dear Sharlene. Go, be with Rhonda and the other members of your family who are with our heavenly Father in His holy kingdom, free from pain and suffering, and enjoying peace and happiness in the company of all the other angels.

  2. Rest in Peace. You will be forever missed. Our babies, that you taught, are sending love and hugs as well. Thank you for giving them special memories to cherish. While we are mourning the loss of a teacher and co-worker as friend, mom, aunt, and dear lady to us all, she is rejoicing in our Heavenly Father's arms. Oh Dear God, please comfort all who has been touched by her, and everyone please hold her family and all friends high in your prayers as well for we will need the good Lord to provide strength during this emotional and difficult time with each passing day to come. Heal us in all your promises Oh Lord that one day again we will be reunited. Forever, may we find Peace through understanding so the sadness will not overcome us, and we will smile each time we think of a special memory of her. Amen

  3. My heart is saddened by the loss of my beautiful friend. Our prayers are with your family.

  4. Rest in Peace, Sharlene. May eternal God be your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. Amen May you always be everlasting light. Cousin. Say hello to all the family in heaven for me.

  5. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).
