I haven’t seen Sharon in many years but when Christopher was little we hung around a lot in Batavia. She was so nice and sweet to me and we had a good time. I moved to Florida and saw her one more time. God bless and I’m so sorry. Lynda Green Kane.

Dear Family. Sharon was my neighbor (Wood St), growing up and she was a fixture in our home during my teen years. She was a tough cookie, but told it like it is. She will be missed and you have my deepest sympathy during your time of grief. She had unconditional love for her father Savie and her children and grandchildren. You are all in my prayers. Gif bless you….Michelle

Louise was an inspirational Woman of God. Her love for Jesus, her husband and her family was very real to anyone who knew her. "Her children rise up and bless her, Her husband also and he praises her saying, " Many daughters have done nobly but you excel them all." Rejoice is your reward, Louise.

T.J. - Words can not adequately express the comfort you brought to my family and me during a very difficult time. My dad's passing has reminded me how blessed we are to have grown up in a place where friendship, loyalty, and personal history mean something. I don't know if you will ever fully know how deeply grateful I am to you for meeting us late the night we lost our dad, so I could say goodbye to him. I will forever hold that kindness you extended close to my heart. May God continue to Bless you and your family.

I cannot express the gratitude I have for how well you cared for my dad and our family. You made this difficult time easier for us to manage. Every time I called, your response was, "sure, let me take care of that, and i will get right back to you." Dad would have loved how well you handled every detail and all of our needs. I truly appreciate you and your kindness.
