Shari loved her Creator God, asked Jesus to forgive her of sin, and loved her family and friends. She always prayed foreach of us, especially when we traveled or were facing difficulties in our lives. Shari always thanked the God of Heaven for answered prayers. She enjoyed fishing, camping, traveling, music, and especially her family and friends. Kind-hearted and very loving, she was giving to those in need even when she couldn’t afford it. She was even more generous with her prayers for others. She was truly a prayer warrior.
