Aunt Sharon you will never be forgotten nor will all the many many times be that we laughed ourselves into tears. You cared for me during a surgery that almost killed me. You were there for me for some pretty tough times to listen and help me through. Not a holiday went by including Valentine's Day or Thanksgiving that I didn't get a card in the mail from you for all 49 years of my life. You always encourage the four of us to show our best side and continue to love and support the ones we cared most about. I am honored to have had you for so many years and I will miss you so very much. My heart is broken and the tears haven't stopped yet, but know that I have you in such a special place forever in my heart. May God bless your journey forward and please hug Grandma and Grandpa for me. Uncle Tim, Mom, and Uncle Robert, I am holding you all close in my prayers and thoughts right now and sending everyone in our family much love.

Steve, Julie, Nolan, Phoebe, and Baguette, Borkows
