    Brad, Steve, Emily, Joey and Tina, Theo and Maria,

    You have our deepest sympathy on the loss of your wife, mother and Gramma.
    Our families met when Joey and Steve and my boys started playing hockey together at a very young age. Over the years we became good friends and spent lots of time together in and out of hockey rinks. Sharon had it all. She was smart, funny, hard working, a good cook, kind and spunky.
    But her greatest gift was the love she had for Brad, her wonderful sons and now their families. I feel honored and lucky to have known her.
