Shari was one of the strongest, most powerful woman we knew. She was a constant role model in our lives and itâ??s heard to capture the impact she had on us even from such a young age. She was always so positive, she had and amazing sense of humor, and was the best gift giver ever. Itâ??s heard to comprehend the loss of such an amazing person.

Audrey, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter Shari. I am thinking about you and your family during this difficult time.

Grace Viner

Shari once said to me â??I donâ??t identify myself as someone with cancer. I live with cancer, but it doesnâ??t define me.â? And I believe with all my heart she lived her life true to that. She left behind a legacy of being so strong in all parts of her life, so true to her principles and faith, and so caring to others. she left behind the image of herself she wanted. An amazing wife, daughter, mother, aunt, cousin, friend, and one of the best people I had the pleasure of sharing my time with.
