Sharon Marie Gath

August 21st, 2013

Sharon left our world too soon on August 21st, 2013.  She had an enthusiasm about life and she was a sweet person who ironically loved her sweets. Her love for family get togethers on holidays was infectious. Sharon was an amazing friend and daughter. She has touched so many lives and has left so many memories. Sharon was an amazing person, her laugh and smile would light up a room. She was pure and genuine with her love for her close friends. She embraced everything about you, celebrated the uniqueness of you and encouraged you to be real and honest and supportively called you out when you weren't. She loved and stood by you with no prejudice. Sharon was taken too soon, but she will never be forgotten.

I can’t even begin to share my grief over losing you.. My sweet and spunky daughter.. My only daughter.. my best friend. I’m lost without you. I pray you are at peace and are free from the debilitating effects that epilepsy had on you. I’ll see you again ... Love, mom
