Mike Sr., Mike Jr. and Debbie, Donna, D-Boy and Susan, I'm sorry that I have not been able to contact you until now, but I want you to know that my mom and I have been thinking of you. Mike Sr., I have been trying to call you--I got your new cell number from Anna Marie Adermann but have not yet been able to get a hold of you. Another of the "classic" Moweaqua South-Enders has left us. What I always remember and treasure about Sharon is her wicked sense of humor. I remember once or twice when I was a kid, she'd see me out of her kitchen window and say, "Mikie Kikie puddin' and pie, kissed the girls and made them cry!" Oh, I hated that ... but then she was also the lady who bandaged up my knee when I skinned it and in anguish was shouting, "In cold blood! In COLD BLOOD!" Some of the kids were laughing at me for that and she told them, don't laugh at him, can't you see he's hurt? I remember how she used to call her house the Batcave because she had a sensitivity to sunlight that required them to keep the shades down. May God's eternal light and life shine upon her and comfort all of you at this time ... and Mike Sr., I will keep trying to get a hold of you.

Mike, Susan and family,
We were sorry to hear about Sharon. I intended on making the visitation last night but was held up at a meeting. I told mom ( Eulalia Ohl) and she said she was a good person. And my dad( Ray) and her knew the family well. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you in the days ahead. Sharon was a beautiful lady. Hair, makeup and jewelry always just perfect!

So sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. She was quite a gal - funny, caring, thoughtful. I enjoyed working with her at Sattley's. She always called me Carolla. My thoughts and prayers to husband Mike, son Mike and Debbie and all your family. She will definitely be missed.
