    We knew Sharon for several years. She used to love to visit with Mel and speak of things Lakota and Delaware. We spent many hours talking and laughing with her and Don. She will be greatly missed. The cancer was so devastating to her body but her mind was always clear. And thank you to Don, her trusted and beloved friend. We love you both.

    Even though I didn’t know Sharon for a long period of time, she had a huge impact on my life. She had so much wisdom to share with others. She was always there for a friendly conversation. She was funny and a joy to be around when she came into town to visit. I had the opportunity to talk to her about a week before she passed and I am thankful that I was able to tell her just to rest, let the worries go and that I loved her. She will be greatly missed.
