I am so sorry to hear of Sharon's passing...at first I didn't recognize the name until I took a closer look at her picture and remembered her as Sharon Starman...as she was once married to my Aunt Carol Starman Burk's brother.....we worked together at Klein unit ...she was fun to be around, I had gone to her house several times to sit and chat...sending prayers of comfort to ease the pain and sorrow..
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your wife. We will always pray for you.
