    Sending comforting prayers 🙏🏾to the family of Sharon Stanford🌻. Farewell my Survivor Sister Shay . She made the most lasting beautiful impression. Shay approach life and work with such contagious zeal, that, being around her, it’s impossible not to feel the same😊. She shared so many words of advice with me over the years and I’ll certainly miss being able to call upon her wisdom. I’m happy to have had the honor of working with her. In moments like these, I truly understand the meaning of the word bittersweet. “I truly hate having to say goodbye”😢. Her absence from our presence will surely bring sadness. The inspiration and the mark that she left behind will last forever. She will still be with us in spirit❤️.   CW4(P) Sonia Y Graves-Rivers
