My deepest condolences to Dennis, Todd, Greg and family. When I was hired as the Town Planner and then Selectmen's Assistant for the Town of Waterboro, Sharon was the friendly face that I would see every morning in the office. She was much more than just a Secretary and she helped me through some tough times. For that I will be ever grateful. Her smile and personality was infectious and she was clever as they come. May the family find comfort that she is no longer a prisoner to the illness that she battled. Sharon, may you rest in peace with your Savior with no more sorrow and no more pain.
