Sharon was an sweet lady whom will be truly missed by her family and friends. Norman and Sharon were in NC when my dad passed away and it was such a blessing. I’m so sorry we were not able to be with your family. We consider Norman and Sharon our extended family and they will always hold a special place in our hearts. Praying for you and your family love your NC family. Shirley Adams, The Lingerfelt’s and The Ford’s
