I just wanted to say to everyone. . . Thanks. It hasn't been easy, nor do we expect easy anymore.
A TSUNAMI of tears have been shed and will continue to fall,
Sharlette made a special attempt to say " I Love You" to each of us at the end of her battle here.
As we were preparing to say our goodbyes she made each of us aware that she cared, a private moment or blasting across the internet she wanted us to know.
Today I was going to delete this page, I hope you all know how much she and we appreciated everyone in this period of time, but I think its better stated in her own words before I end this page.
Instead I want each to read Sharlette's words as she wrote them, say a short prayer for her, for us and for each other. Ask for those whom she loved will continue to support and love one another. Ask that we all continue to share great memories and to remember Sharlette's Love.
Please scroll down to read Sharlette's posings.
From Sharlette's family, Thank you all for the kindness.
This is a message from Sharlette Peter's Mother, Patricia Wilkins:
We are almost there, with everyone's help we were able to give Sharlette some needed cash during her illness to offset the terrible expense of a terrible disease.
Then with everyone's support we were able to pay the Cremation and memorial service expenses.
Now we "humbly" ask that everyone who has ability, to continue the donations, send to your email lists, post on your social networks so we will be able to purchase a final resting place, a plot of ground and marker for our Sharlette.
If you were emailed this by mistake, please forgive us during these terrible days. Those who were kind enough to help we are eternally in your debt.
Because of you, we were able to have some peace and be able to bring her cremains home yesterday. She is missed and we love her. See Her Here
Our pleas for help is of great necessity and we would not ask if we had other ways to obtain the funds. We are paycheck to paycheck people who pay our way but leaves very little for emergencies. We understand others are in need also. Her husband gave up his business to care for her needs. They spent everything available fighting for her to live when insurances denied.
We were blessed to have Sharlette for 48 years and are blessed to have one another. We are not far away from our goal.
We need only to reach our $5000. goal to pay for everything. We have used the funds efficiently to cover medications and supplies, Cremation and Chapel rental, now we just need cemetary plot, interrment fees, and modest plaque.
Please help my family have little garden space in cemetary for my baby Sharlette. Where we may visit, cry and reminisce a life full of family, friends and Sharlette's laughter

Tonight Sharlette Peters has gone home, She passed away around 8pm and is already missed. May our focus be towards helping her Husband David, son Charles and Daughter raise enough money to invest in a lasting Memorial Marker, Plot or Garden for her. Time is certainly of the essence, Prayers abound so I'm sure we can help some?
Til we are together again, we Love you Sharlette Lynn Peters May 11 1964 - January 15 2013 48 Years treasured.

My sister Sharlette 48 years old has been Diagnosed with Terminal Cancer, I have been pleading for little blessings to make what time she has left worry free for her and her Husband David who has been tending to her needs (unable to work as much) since this illness and hospice care.
Doctor's say couple months of life left but my sister is determined to fight as long as she can fight for time to spend with Her Children Samantha and Charles and Husband David. Bills are piling up, but with a few kind people maybe we can help lift the financial burden and let her put her thoughts towards getting better and making peace with this tough journey. We expect one day at a time, and one smile at a time. Below is a plea I put on facebook. I thought its time to ask the kind folks at "Go Fund Me" for their help, blessings, prayers, and if they can spare some cash Please Help.

My name is Rex, I am proud to be Sharlette's brother. I have been stalking facebook for many years following the posts and seeing what my extended family and their friends have been up to or even dramatizing about. It's great entertainment. This being said also there is sharing of serious issues and the healing which comes from a friend extending a shoulder to cry upon or hand to hold even from across the world.
Those reading this either know Sharlette directly or or for the sake of helping her has forwarded a prayer request or many on her behalf. She can be described as both "passionately strong willed" and "lovingly kind". She will stand up defiantly for what she believes in or her friends. She allows no-one to tell her what to do nor what she can not do. Sharlette is also greatly loved by neighborhood children, her nieces, nephews and any other needy child blessed enough to bump into her. She maintained a Sponge Bob Bedroom in her home many years after her Daughter Sammi moved out, and has filled her husband David's shopping cart at walmart with toys and pajamas for children at every opportunity each holiday even though her children are grown. She can be seen fishing, swimming or jusy playing with the "little Ones". (Can any of us top this?).
She is and has always been blessed, The kind wishes and the friendships she has is greatly treaured by her. She has a loving family, Devoted husband and two great children. Our belief in God is strong and the prayers are greatly appreciated.
She is fighting this terminal cancer backed up by her strong will, Her God, Her Family and Her Friends. All the tools needed except a way to pay the extra expenses of co-pays, medication and expenses not covered by income. She needs help financially but she would be too proud to ask. I'm not that proud.
If all you can afford is getwell thoughts and your prayers for recovery, which we consider priceless. That is greatly appreciated. If you would be so kind please help Sharlette and David with some much needed cash.. If you Tithe at your local church, Donate to local charities, and give tips to local servicepeople, how about giving and extra one and tithe, donate or give to help our Sharlette fight for her life, without worries of the bills piling up.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your Family,
