  1. such a wonderful lady as we have known her since she and Smokey got married. We lived across the street from them and were very good friends. I never got the chance to go see her when she became ill but sure remember the good times and also the bad times we shared together. She will surely be missed, but will remember all the good memories forever. She leaves a wonderful family that will always be in our prayers.I’m sure Smokey and Mindy and Charles were there to welcome her home.

  2. Though we did not know “Shar” personally, we knew of her from her niece “Ida” We send our condolences to her family along with much prayer.
