Bill, we truly loved being with you and Shar. You both took us places we never would have gone to. The two of you are so special to us. You are our best friends. Bill, we will definitely miss Shar. She just had a sparkle in her eyes and loved everyone she met. We loved her, and we love you Bill.

Bill and family,
I was so sad to hear of Shar's passing. Such a vibrant and kind person. I had the pleasure of knowing her through church and later in a water aerobics class. My thoughts are with you and family.

I was utterly shocked to hear of Shar's passing. And then I thought that this is exactly how she would have wanted to go. Shar has been such an inspiration in my life.....from being in church groups to playing bridge. She has been a light in my life. I am truly sorry for your loss but you have some wonderful memories to hold on to.

To Bill and family: Please accept my heartfelt condolences upon learning of Shar’s unexpected death. What a loss to family and friends... and the larger Chelsea community. Though petite, her smile could fill a room and her spirit will live on the lives of those who were graced by her life. She was a force for good: loving, accepting, encouraging and quick to smile and laugh.

May all of us realize we gained more through her life than we have lost at her death. Blessings!

Bill and Family,
I am sorry about Shar’s passing. She was a great supporter of the schools and the teachers. I truly appreciate the support and encouragement she gave me in becoming involved in teaching for ALI. It was a worthwhile experience. I also appreciate her support in attending St. Paul’s church when I spoke there.

She will be missed by the family, by many friends, and the entire Chelsea community.

We are deeply saddened to hear this news. We saw Bill and Shar in church at our last in person worship. Bill and Shar were so sweet together.

May the Lord bless Bill, and all of her family, with peace and grace during this difficult time.

In His Love,
