Herb, my heart aches for you and your entire family.

Life is so fragile, and unknown. Your circle of friends gathers now to embrace you and lift and hold you in your time of mourning. Your brothers are here to share the lions paw of strength with you. Even though this hour seems so dark, it like all others only has 60 minutes, and the light of life begins to shine.

Sharon's passing brings the experiences we have shared, on the warm beach's of the Caribbean, to dancing at Christmas and encircle all of those cherished moments and have turned them into golden memories.

Sending hugs to you and our deepest sympathy.

Dear Herb and Family,

Sharon was a new friend to me and to Ismah Temple Ladies. Our prayers and blessings go out to you and your family. Some of us were coming to the funeral, but have ice and several inches of snow. She will be remembered here. We were all so honored to have her visit in August. "Silver halo shining bright, wreathing a smile that warmed your soul. She opened her arms and gave you peace and love." May she be at peace and will forever be in my memories

I will miss Sharon's bubbly personality and enthusiasm that she brought to me. She was always the first one to call and ask "where are we going next year?" We loved having you on our trips and will be forever grateful for the friendship. Take care my friend and know we are there for you and your family.

May the dear family of Sharon find comfort in knowing that one day "all" in the grave will live again.

(John 5:28, 29) These ones will be resurrected to a world where sickness and suffering are no more. (Psalm 37:29; Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:4) I'm sure Sharon came across this wonderful hope during her Bible reading. As you await the return of all now in the grave, know too that you are invited by our Creator, Jehovah God, to "throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) Take care dear ones and please accept my sincerest condolences.
