    Sharon – one of the great pillars of faith of Holt UMC! She was a huge help in my spiritual formation, as I grew up in Holt UMC. Always loved her and Dave – great people, great fun. Enjoyed Bible Studies with them. She will be missed greatly by so many. Prayers and sympathy to Dave and family. Imagine what fun everyone in heaven is having with her there now – wow. Take care – hugs,
    Rev. Mary K. Green

    I will always be beholden to Sharon and Dave for fostering the Dudonis girls and giving them the love and care that their biological family couldn’t. The girls and their biological family are all blessed that Sharon and Dave were willing to take on the task of raising the girls in a stable and religious environment. The girls are testimony to the love and nurturing that was, and is, Sharon. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
