Condolences for the family of “Margaret Strowd Sharpe”

Condolence from Delois Wright Popp on May 22nd, 2012 12:00 am

William, Jimmy and Families: I was stunned to get the message from PHS Reunion Committe about Margaret Ellen. I was not aware she was sick.. I am sorry for your loss and will be thinking of you all during this time. She was a special lady and I would see her occasionally over the past few years. We always had a great visit when we saw each other… whether it was the bank, grocery store, or nursing home..

Our beloved Aunt Bollie has passed on but we will always remember the wonderful times we spent with her and the “East Coast Sharpes”. She was a beautiful, smart, classy woman and we will always remember her. With love………..

Margaret was a wonderful, strong and loving person. It was a pleasure to know her over the last few years. I miss her visits and her smiling face. My deepest condolences to her husband and family.

We saw each other far too rarely, but when we met, it felt like we’d been together just the week before. When we took off on an adventure from a conference, I sometimes thought we should have warned the city that we were coming into town. I am very sad. Much love to you, Bill and Ashley.

About 5 yrs ago I met Mrs Margaret Ellen as she came in from time to time checking on things here. She was such a delight to see. Always so kind and sweet. I’m sure she will be missed by many.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sharpe family at this very sad time.
We had a wonderful holiday with the Sharpes in France many years ago, where i first met Margaret, and have very fond memories of our time cooking eating and chatting en famille.
I will always remember Margaret as a kind, generous and thoughtful person. I know she will be greatly missed.
Love Tania Josh and Jude
