    To the Carpenter & Bowers families,

    Hearing of Sharon’s passing was a shock to me. Although it’s been many years since I’ve seen Sharon, I have many memories of her being Bridgette’s big sister, her big smile & the love that filled the Carpenter home on Oakwood Avenue. God bless all those she leaves to cherish her memory. Our prayers & condolences are with you.
