To Byron, Steph, Chris and family,

You’ve all been in our thoughts since we heard the news.. we’re very sorry for your loss.
When I think of Sharon myself, I immediately think of beautiful, bright red lipstick, (or hair) warm smiles, big laughs and a love for kitties. Much of this is what I cherish so dearly about Steph. – D ❤️
The love and kindness you all shared will carry on forever and we are sending you so much strength during this incredibly difficult time.

Byron and Stephanie, so sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing. Losing a life partner is one of the most difficult losses to experience as I can attest and of course Stephanie losing your Mom is hard as well. Sharon had a brilliant smile and I can still picture her Ian’s the red lipstick! Sharon was very kind and considerate person. Treasure the many memories you have shared.

Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Sharon Sullivan Ford. I know from Sharon’s face book entries that she was the colour, life and happiness of many people and will be deeply missed. I am related to Sharon in that I am Willbur Reid’s niece. Wilbur was Sharon’s grandfather.
