I had a long post ready and realized everyone had probably said the same things. To avoid sounding redundant I deleted it. She was my friend and all I can say is I hope she is enjoying her new station in life! See you again some day my dear dear friend... I will miss the phone calls and messages much. Prayers to Mike and the rest of her family for strength to work through this devastating loss.

AnimalKrackers - 2011-02-12 7:15 PM I want to say, thank you to all the folks posting memories and times spent with Sharon...she is proudly looking down and encouraging our runs, and asking us to not cry; but be happy and have fun...remember her words of wisdom and pass them on. Tomorrow I ride in her honor....it may not be perfect, or fast...but we are going to have fun, and we will do it for you gal...miss you and love you... My thoughts and prayers go to Mike, he is on a journey and his heart is healing...The Lord knows his needs, and the Lord will lift Mike up... I got your back Mike!
Very well said. I can here her now, "Sit Down"!!! from somewhere in the crowd as I make my run. "HURRY" as I'm coming off headed the next...... No matter where you we running I could always here Sharon in the background while I was making a run. Its like I listened for her voice to help me during the run. If it wasn't for Sharon, I wouldn't own Boons Prescription (AKA Harley) my sorrel coon tail mare that I run now. She was bought about 500 yards from her house. I was looking for a young horse to start and Sharon and Mike told me about their neighbor that was wanting to sell all her young horses and their mothers. So I went down and picked one out. Come to find out, the one I picked was one that had gotten hurt several months earlier and Sharon and Mike had to take care of her while their neighbors was out of town. Sharon told me that Harleys attitude hadn't change at all. She was still the Witch she was then when they were doctoring her cut. Now though she was worse. Told me that was what made her the horse she was. LOL....tough and gritty.....These next several months will be hard to make runs without listening for "Sit down" and "Hurry". We had planned on going out to eat in Glen Rose in a couple of weeks.
Sharon Glen Rose will be for you My Friend. Harley, Emily and I will try our best to make each run count for you. Love you!
You have done a GREAT job w/ Harley- I didn't know that story! So sorry for the loss of your dear friend.......Renee

Thanks. I had her cell # and always just used that (and Facebook messages). My heart just aches when I think of her gone. I remember when she told me "Mike was the best thing that ever happened to her", as she put it. I can only imagine how he must feel.

Wow. I have not checked this board in a week or so. No particular reason, other than I've been busy. I was about to shut down my computer tonight, when something told me I should check BHW. I usually don't check the stickies first, but tonight, I did. I could not believe my eyes when I read this news. I knew Sharon, have talked to her many times, and she actually had a hand in Goose eventually ending up in my barn. I can't believe she's gone. Wow. You just never know when your time will come. Prayers for Mike and her family, friends, and the animals who loved her.

I am not sure if this is possible we may need to get Dave or Gail involved but I am planning on attending the services thursday and was wondering if you guys would be interested in doing our own "memorial" so to say to Sharon....
Heres my idea...each person can write something special...quote, memory of Sharon or prayer or whatever and I will print it out and bring it with me......Does this sound good?????

Really nice service held for Sharon.
The video that played had pictures from when she was a child through school and her lovely wedding to Mike.
As well as, her barrel racing career on several great horses....
Ending with current pictures with her niece, riding her stuffed horse....
Flowers were arranged everywhere!!! Sharon was surely happy with just enough, but not to much.
Prayers to Mike, God will give you strengh to go forward.
Please know we are all here for you, should you need us.

Thank you for posting about how the service was...for those of us who would have liked to be there. It sounds beautiful. When I worked out the horses Thursday I rode in a saddle she sold me (with the horse it was made for) many years ago. We will all miss her so much. Heartfelt prayers for Mike and all who loved her.
