From the daughters of Johnnie Lucille Drott Sharp: Terry, Edel & Laura (Known collectively, by our family as “the girls”). My sisters and I would like to thank our Cokes Chapel family for all the love, prayers, cards and food that you provided during the recent loss of our mom, Lu Sharp. There are no words that can express our gratefulness for the support given by all of you. Pastor Lisa, you truly celebrated her life the way she lived it: Joyfully and with humor. Thank you again.
