I did not have the privilege to know Sharon well. Our relationship was by business. However, I have been following and serving Jesus since He became my Lord in 1977. Sharon was always pleasant to work with. I look forward to meeting her in that sweet bye and bye. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Praise be to God for His unspeakable gift of Jesus and for His enduring mercy and grace.

Sharon was a great person. I'm blessed to have had the opportunity to call her my friend. Although we only worked together briefly at DHEC we grew close. She had such a giving and kind heart she even shared her father's vegetables from his garden with me. I just want to send my sincere condolences to the family and I pray your strength in the Lord.

My heart is so sad words can express the pain that I'm feeling. Nothing would have prepared me for losing you. The bond that you and Macky shared was so strong and there's nothing that I can say or do at this point to comfort him. He's missing you like crazy and I'm missing you too. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. This is your morning you received your joy and your healed. No more pain no more dealing with the stresses of life. Although our hearts may be heavy but God makes no mistakes. I thank you for the 20 plus years that I've known you and how you've accepted me into your family, I thank you. For the love that you've shown me, I thank you. For the love that you've shown your nephew, I thank you. For all the lessons that you've taught him even when he didn't want to listen, I thank you. For just being a listening ear when I needed someone to talk to, I thank you. God gave you 39yrs to carry out the plans that he had for you. And it is my belief that when he receives you into his kingdom he will say Sharon my good and faithful servant well done. Macky and I love and I thank you for loving us.

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The first time I met Sharon was at Jason's wedding, but she was very nice and pleasant. As a parent, I can't imagine your grief. However, God never gives up more than we can handle. We wish the both of you our deepest sympathy.  We know in time, the Lord will provide the comfort that you seek. I am sorry that we were not able to be there with you. May God continue to pour his many blessings around the both of you and your family. Again, we are sorry for your loss. The Sims Family
