Have known you forever Sharron Ray. You played piano for me so many times while I sang Sunday mornings at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Clute. Your family has always been like family to me especially Andrea. You will be sorely missed by everyone who knew you.

Sharon and her family were always an extension of my family through the years we lived at Clute. The girls were like our girls, boys like our boys especially Jamie. The love that I had and still have for this family is unwavering. My prayers are with you Elizabeth, Andrea and Karen as you lay your sweet mother to rest. Be comforted that she's in the presence of Christ. I love you girls! Vicki Shafer

We are so sorry to hear of Sharon's death. She was a very sweet friend and church member to Carroll in his early years of ministry at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Clute. It is so hard to lose our precious loved ones but it is such a wonderful blessing to know that because she accepted Christ as Savior that she is with the Lord and we will see her again. We will be praying for all of you in the days ahead. May God bless you all. We love y'all. Carroll and Sandy Jones
