Among many of her accomplishments while on this earth, she is known best for her love and compassion for all animals, including her own horses, mules, donkeys and their black Labrador “Jesse”. She loved spending time caring and loving them all at the Mac Farm in Burgaw until her last days. She was an amazing friend to all that had the pleasure of knowing her and a tremendous messenger of God to us all. Sharon will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Her talent and passion for writing and the infinite love she had for the Holy Spirit of Christmas inspired several published Christmas Tea and Christmas Tea with Angels books that will forever be embedded in our minds and hearts.  May we all aspire to live by the example she has set as she was the very definition of unconditional love and the way God intends someone to live their life. We will forever be blessed just by knowing her.

    There is so much one could write about Sharyn; so many have already spoken the best. Proverbs 31:10-31 is about a worthy woman with outstanding abilities. Here a few verses that perfectly describe her. "An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. Strength and dignity are her clothing and she smiles at the future. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. Her children rise up and bless her, her husband also, and he praises her." Sharyn was an inspiration to all of us. She used her gifts from God to make the world a better place. My deepest sympathy to her devoted, loving husband Randy, her precious children and grandchildren, her relatives, and friends who loved her so dearly. We will all hold a special place in our hearts for her until we meet again for eternity.

    Sharyn was the best friend I have ever had and the McIntyre family was the best. My friendship with the McIntyre's begin in 1974. We have stayed in contact over the years and have the memories of them visiting each summer at Topsail Beach. We have watched our children grow up over the years, shared stories and pictures of grandchildren, been there for each other during troubled times and definatly had some extreme good times at their swimming pool. I know that Sharyn is watching us during this process and she wants everyone to feel happy and know that the pain is gone and she is with her parents and God. Sharyn was a gift from God and anyone that knew her was blessed to have known her while on this earth. I miss her terribly but I know we will see each other again in Heaven. God bless the family during their time of grief. Love you all
