Dear Ketner family, I am saddened to hear of Sharon’s passing. I am out of town for the month or I would have attended her service. Your mom and wife was so good to me and my family. She was always complimentary of our children and I was honored when she asked me to perform some temple work for some of her family members. I know she loves each of you fiercely. I pray you can enjoy happy memories of her. My life is better for having known her.
With love and sympathy, Dottie Parson
I was sorry to read at the passing of your wife. I have fond memories of my relationship with you and wish you Heavenly Father's blessing of comfort at this time of deep sadness in your life.
I first met Sharon when we both attended Living Hope many years ago. Suresh and Don were colleagues at Thioko, we we both extend our condolences to the whole family.
Sharon was a loving, caring woman who will be greatly missed. When I worked with her in Relief Society she always said "we take care of business" meaning we did whatever it took to get the job done. I have many happy memories of Sharon. She always shrived to gain knowledge. Our prayers and sympathy to her family and friends.
Leslie and I have lost a dear friend. Sharon and Don are such giving and loving people. Sharon has taught me many important lessons through her kindness and untiring support to those in need.
Here ability to write and express her feelings and her wisdom in our ward newsletters and personal letters will ever strengthen Leslie and I. Our love and deepest sympathy go out to Don and the family.
She is missed already.
