    Sharon, will be greatly missed, leaving hard shoes to fill, a great manager, when you walked in the store, the service was spectacular, never had to worry about getting an answer on anything, if she didn’t have it, she would always order it in, Home Hardware will never be the same, enjoy your retirement, you earned it many times over

    Congratulations Sharon,,!! Oh you will be missed by so many. I could always count on you to help me. Such a beautiful lady inside and out. You were always professional and if the store didn’t have the item, you offered extra help and tried elsewhere, etc.
    The store won’t be the same without you. Enjoy your retirement and you surely deserve it.
