Sharon only passed on to a new voyage. She will be with me in my heart forever. We had a lifetime of good times camping, fishing, hunting and riding motorcycles. Sharon is and always will be the shining star in my heart. When I see stars in the sky she will always shine in my heart. When I see rivers and nature, the beauty of God’s earth and all the animals we both love, she will be in my heart forever until we meet again in the happy campgrounds of Heaven.

The family asks that any remembrances in Sharon’s memory be made to Herbert Beck, P.O. Box 1223, Quincy, CA 95971 to help defray final expenses.
