Sandie, I am so sorry for your loss. Sharon was a most caring person who always went out of her way to make all feel welcome. She was especially kind to me when I first arrived in Mechanicsburg and continued this kindness until she retired. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sunil

So sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. I worked with her years ago. Sending prayers to all of her family.
Dear Mom, lm so deeply hurt by your passing. There is a huge hole inside me that will never be healed. No one was as special to me as you my dear mother. You always were there for me, especially when l didnt deserve it. No one has ever showed me that kind of love :)
Mom, my fondest memories in life are and always be the times l was with you, from when l was a kid until now. When l close my eyes, l can still see your face and hear your voice telling me its going to be okay. I pray that this part of you stays with me forever.
You were taken from me so quickly. So many things we will never get to do. And though l cant be there to see you off, l promise to do right mom. No women deserves more respect and honor than you, and even though youre not here l will make you proud from up above. Mom, l will always miss you, always love you, and never, ever ever forget you. :-) :-)
Good bye for now, until we meet again. :-) :-) :-)
Love, your son,

Mark Shaffer
 To the relatives of Sharon: My brother who still lives in Carlisle sent me Sharon's obituary. I went to school with Sharon and I dearly loved her throughout our junior high and high school days. I imagine she stayed as sweet as she was back then. Planning to see her in heaven someday. Praying for you all as you will miss her so much.

She always was a ray of sunshine when she would walk into a room with her smile and laughter. With her husband Rocky by her side the 2 were truly a sight to see. My grandmother and her was more than a neice and aunt they was like best friends. It was always great to see a smile on my grandparents' faves when she would come to see them. Thank you for being our sunshine. There was a saying on a program I watched were a woman wrote to her friends and loved ones alike before her passing it said as follows "Remember me in laughter and smiles For if you only remember me in tears then we know not each other" This is how I will remember you Sharon as we all shall miss you dearly.

 There was a program that I recall watching where a woman wrote a saying to her friends and loved ones alike it said as follows "Remember our times of laughter and smiles Or not remember me at all" Sharon was one of them it was hard never to forget her smiles and laughter. When she would walk into a room she had a certain glow about her with the love of Rocky she glowed more day by day. She always knew how to make others shine like our late beloved Grandmother or Aunt Marie but with this being said she also shared her loving and amazing heart with us all. Thank you from the bottom of mine Sharon I will cherish the love and memories always.
