May God continue to comfort, strengthen and bless the beautiful family that she loved so dearly. I spoke with Shari and got to know her while working together; I saw her beautiful smile and positive personality that she displayed daily. She lived with purpose, sharing her gifts and time to many causes and was a friend to those who knew her. I'm blessed to have been a part of her journey! Derrick L Ouzts

Shari you forever hold a place in my heart. It didn't matter if you were younger than she or older she. That love for everyone was the same. You always had your own style and I would always look forward to see what style of hair you would rock for the week to the next. Rest baby girl. My Soror of the Blue and White.
