  1. Even tho I never met you, I felt like I knew you from all the years waking up to you and J.R. on my alarm clock. Then I would listen to both of you on my drive to work at 6:30 daily. The show can’t possible be the same without Sharon. That warm contagious laugh and quick wit will sadly be missed. Rest in peace. At least you are with your mom and aunt, you’ll NEVER be alone. I hope for your family’s sake, they figure out what lead to your tragedy.
