Help keep everyone in the know by sharing this memorial website.

Personal note from Melissa Peterman

Until we are all able to gather together and reminisce about the one-and-only Sharon Johnson, we hope that everyone will find solace in utilizing this memorial website to share your treasured memories, photos, and videos about her. To get you in the right mindset, we find it is helpful to surround ourselves with a few of her favorite things. So while you type-up the best Sharon-isms, record a video of your favorite knee-slapping moment, or sort through photos to find the one that best captures her spirit, we encourage everyone to also do one or more of the following:
• Snack on Jack-in-the-Box tacos
• Cheers "The Old Lady" with a Diet Pepsi, extra ice
• Have dessert first with an Oreo Cookie Shake, hold the whipped cream
• Pour yourself a rum and coke or a glass of J. Lohr Cabernet
• Swing by Jo's Diner and order the meatloaf
• Put in a call to Fiori's for a Popeye Spinach Pizza
• Get your hygge on curled up under a cozy blanket with a lit scented candle

But whatever you do, don't start reminiscing until after at least 11:00 AM ;)
