    My heart is very sad. She was a good hearted sweet person that will truly be missed. I knew her from here as well and I was glad I had the privilege of knowing her. May God comfort her family. Sharon I will miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She's not going to 'rest in peace'.

    Rather, I suspect she's gone to St. Peter' Photo Store and got her hands on the Nikon D95000 with the 5-5000mm f/0.7 pancake kit lens by now.

    And if there ain't no cameras in heaven, then she's going to be veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry disappointed!

    ((Big Hugs)) all.

    I still don't even know what to say this morning. Sharon and I joined TPF within a month of each other, we both had our very first DSLR in our hands and we wanted to learn. She was a big part of my journey, we helped each other, cheered each other on, and I think we drove each other to be better.

    It seems Sharon drove a lot of people to be better, she was pure in her faith in God, oh how she loved her family and friends, and she was passionate in her pursuit of photography. The outpouring of love for Sharon here and on Facebook is a testament to a great life she built around herself, we were all blessed to be a part of it.

    This is a song that has been posted many times by Sharon's loved ones so I'm going to share it with all of you.

    Pixel my greatest thanks for coming here to share this news with us; its not an easy message to give at any time and I thank you for taking the time to tell us.

    It's very saddening news to hear indeed; she was a great person and a big part of our community here - she will be missed.

    Snowbear - I think she'd be happy to be remembered in such photos; a beacon of life and energy!

    If Terri wants to coordinate a gift to any appropriate charity in her honor, count me in.

    Perhaps a remembrance to her church?
    In any case, count me in.

    Sad news. She'll be missed on here and it just won't be the same. I began to miss her presence very soon after she stopped posting.

    On a lark, I called her cell phone. Her son answered.

    Services are planned for Sunday. I inquired if there was any charity she has specified for donations, but he wasn't aware of any. I said I'd call back Monday to see if the family had made any decisions about it.

    He also apparently has access to her Facebook page and said he'll start posting information there.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Unexpected news, considering the last we heard she was doing better. :( I'm sure her family is gutted.

    Thank you so much for letting us know. I was kinda hoping she would start dropping by again. She was wonderful to know, and our TPF family will miss her.
