I've been blessed by the opportunity to get to know and work with Sharon's brother Gleason over the past few weeks (hopefully followed by many more years to come). He's been a breathe of fresh air to our organization. I learned of Sharon's passing on Tuesday from Gleason. I know he was deeply saddened. So I wanted to express my sympathy to the entire Gallagher Family for your loss. I pray Sharon is no longer having to fight and is

Oh Shawnya, I can't believe you left us so soon! We share so many memories: hours of playing guitar and singing harmonies in college. Skiing at Killington in double-digit below zero weather. Playing long tennis matches with infinite energy. Partying at the Lexington house with Isabel. Eating submarine sandwiches with swaddles of mayo. Talking talking and more talking. Bless you dear old friend and know that you will be remembered with love.

It has been my great pleasure to work with Sharon over the past 28-30 years. We have worked as a team serving hundreds of our mutual clients.
She deeply cared for her clients, and worked tirelessly to help them achieve their objectives.

She was an inspiration professionally and personally. She battled her illness for years without complaint or self pity.

Everyone at my firm loved her and she will be greatly missed.

The Anchor team misses you, girl. See you on the other side.

Sharon and I worked together for many years at PW and UBS. We shared a love of art and often chatted about little things. It's those small, everyday occurrences that I'll always remember. I hope that the memories of Sharon's bravery and selfless spirit will help to bring comfort to you, her family, during this difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear about Sharon. I have such fond memories of her during my son's time at the Choir School. Sharon smile would always light up a room, she had a heart of gold and oh, so kind.

I knew Sharon only in as my financial adviser, but she was so much more than that. We were friends who took time once a year to talk about our lives and our dreams. She spoke of her travels in Europe, wine country, Italy...her zest for life was well apparent. She coached my husband and I to have dreams, and her job was to be sure we realized them. And she did this in such a personal way, not just
