My sincere condolences to the entire Laughman family. The loss of Sharon has created ripples of sadness for many. I remember being so thrilled to go visit Sharon-perhaps it was all the snacks she provided or the cold pepsis in the fridge or the general acceptance of chaos with all of us running around, and there was always room for one more in her red chevy wagon. Most of all, I think it was how she and my mom talked. They were like school girls in the back of the class with a chuckle or knowing glance to one another. Sharon you will be missed! My only solace is knowing you no longer have pain and suffering. I truly believe grandma called you home on the 14th (who else would you listen too) and Im sure you are dragging grandma around to peer at the ocean and trying to get a glimpse of Johnny Carson! Love to all her family!
