My deepest sympathies to you Royal, and your family. I only met Shari on rare Conference occasions but recall her smile. May the Lord grant you peace!

Royal--So sorry to hear of Shari's death but glad her struggle is over. I remember well the day I met you and Shari for a Board of Ordained Ministry interview in the 1990's. Prayers for you and your ministry today and in the days to come. --Stephen Perry

May the Lord bring your family comfort in your time of sorrow. I loved my visits with Shari, she was always so upbeat and cheerful. Shari touched so many lives, as she did mine.

It was my honor and pleasure to know Shari in the short time she had with us. She was a blessing, so cheerful and up beat. May the Lord bless the family in their time of sorrow. My heart goes out to all that knew her. She will be missed dearly at the Home.
