I was heartbroken to hear of you losing your wife, the mother of your children, and your dearest friend. I have so many fond memories of Sharon working with us in the principal's office. She always had a smile for me, a cute story, and was a gifted singer. You, Shane and Shawn are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Maynard Family,
When I think of Sharon and your family, I think of a sweet and gentle spirit! Even years ago when the twins spent time with our kids and the youth group, the memories are of a precious family who are loving and supportive and encouraging.
My heart breaks at your loss and I pray the Comforter wraps His arms around you and holds you up...I know He will and does.
Please also know that there are MANY who are praying and who care...even beyond the large support system of family and church and close friends. You are much loved! Blessings!
