Our family is saddened by the passing of Sharon, but know that she is with Jesus and basking in His presence right now.
We were so pleased to have Don and Sharon as the Music Director at First Baptist Church. We loved the solos that Sharon sang in the services and enjoyed being part of a quartet with Sharon and Don.
May the Lord comfort and give you peace in the days ahead. We love your family so much and regret that we were not able to attend the service for Sharon today.
With love, Bill and Mert Remington, Jerry and Lora Baughey, and Scott and Kristen (Baughey) Smith
