I am so saddened by the passing of Sharon! I met her over 20 years ago when my husband and I moved into our first home, expecting out first daughter. I was blessed to have Sharon as my Visiting Teacher. She was so helpful in so many ways! Advice for a new mother, since she had four children at the time. She watched my daughter, Alex, for hours at a time as I traveled up to UNT to complete research for my Masters’s Thesis. She is such an example of selfless love and service. I even got to go with her on one of her garage sale trips and learn how to find that great deal among all the options. To Doug, and all her family, I mourn with you for this tremendous loss of a beautiful woman!!! The knowledge of her great faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel help the sense of loss I feel. I pray the Holy Ghost comfort you all, like a soft blanket, in the coming days and weeks.
I love my cousin very much. I am grateful I was able to talk with her and hug her 3 weeks ago. (She wanted to speak back I could see her frustration and desire- she can speak again...)She has always been an amazing example to me. Anywhere from being a newlywed with Doug to the wonderful Newman Reunion talent shows with Doug and all 6 kids (how to get them all to happily participate is beyond me) and then her fight to her transition. I hope to be 1/2 the mom and grandma she is. Angels among us and I am grateful she is one of mine. God be with you until we meet and hug again.
Doug our continue family and personal prayers are with you and your family. May comfort be with you and the family- please allow grief in your life there is no time table. A difficult time for you please know we love you so much and will support you the best we can. Hugs!
Aunt Peggie, Uncle Leon and cousins- We love you guys so much. You too are amazing parents, family, faithful and loving people. We love you and we are here for you!
A life so well lived. A true child and daughter of God. Of course she will be so missed by her loved ones and all who knew her. Comfort is found in the knowledge that this separation will not be forever and a reunion will be coming in due time. My sweet younger brother Rex was also taken home a few month ago. This is the hardest part of life on earth when we are helpless to relieve their pain and suffering. May the good Lord bless and keep you and yours through this time of sadness and loss and look forward to that brighter day of reunion.
