    Sharon was beautiful both inside and out.
    She was a warm, wonderful person who loved life and had so much to live for.
    It is a shame that it ended so soon.
    God bless her.

    Sharon was a truly beautiful woman who, i think,was just touching stardom when her life and that of her baby, was taken by people who are not fit to be part of any society.
    I like to think that her career would have advanced,she had demonstrated a talent for comedy.

    my son’s c-section was scheduled for 8/9/2011. he chose to arrive by emergency c-section on 8/6/2011. i thought of Sharon during my last trimester and prayed for she and Baby Paul to rest in love and peace. it saddens me to know that she held her precious baby in her arms only in death!!! they are eternally together and hugging one another!!

  12. Charmaine pickerill Says:

    I was too young to remember Sharon. My mother used to tell me how beautiful she was, and guess what she was stunningly beautiful. What happened to Sharon and her baby was heart breaking story, so sad she died too young.
