In Memory of Sharron Saksa McLaughlin

II Corinthians 5:17
if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone,
the new has come!

Silver Ribbon...


On New Years Eve 2004 Sharron made her biggest cry for help when she took 30 thousand mg of Lithium.  She was taken to the ER where they, this time, took drastic measures to save her life and she was then moved to Brookwood Dual Diagnostic Center.   I must say this place is fantastic.  It was here that she put me in charge of her mental health care and after a long meeting with Dr. C he listened to her, properly diagnosed her and put her on the right combination of medication.  Soon after this another thing came along that saved Sharron in many ways.  Miss Mya came into her world in late October 2005 in a 10 pound bundle.  She became Sharron’s world and two years later Trey came in to complete it as an 8 pound bundle.   It was after this my mom, Beth, and I started wearing our silver ribbons and telling Sharron’s story to anyone who asked about them.
