We both loved Sharon so much and appreciated her more than words could ever explain. She was always happy and willing to take care of whatever needed to be done. She never complained or spoke one unkind word to anyone. Our entire Ford Family will miss her at all of our activities and events. Thank God we were able to cross paths with Sharon Spears!
Don, You and Sharon epitomized what our club was all about … always there, always smiling & laughing, always such a big part of things. You were both loved so much by all of us. Sharon will be greatly missed. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Sharon was such a bright star. Always happy, smiling & put others first. A very special person to us. She will be missed. She has no pain now. Thoughts & prayers to the family at this time.
For over a decade I could always rely on seeing my dear friends Sharon and Don Spears each week at my performances as Elvis at The Fabulous 50’s. Seeing their faces in the crowd always touched my heart. I will cherish those memories for the rest of my life. Sharon you will be deeply missed but I know we will all sing together again someday for the Lord Jesus. Don we love you and our prayers are going up for you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sharon was a very kind and sweet lady. I haven’t got to spend much time with her but the time I did spend was very precious to me. I enjoyed the last family reunion at the cabins watching everyone sing.
Dear Don and family, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Sharon. She was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. I was Honored when someone thought we were sisters. Fred and I share in your sadness and hope that the kind words of your family and friends will make this time a bit easier to bear. We love you.
