“Desired One”
Baby girl
You are so beautiful, fine and lovely
You turn heads of every man
That set eyes on you
Baby girl
Your love
Makes a poor man rich beyond his dreams
A rich man appreciates the beauty of life
Baby girl
Your love
Makes that old man
Wish he were young again
A young man
Wish he was old enough
Those who are of age
Wish they could have you
If only for one night
Baby girl
Your love
Is the desire of every man
But only a few
Could ever have you
For you are a
Choosy lover!


“Precious Shari”
All I need
Is one word to describe you
I could use heavenly
But it is not dramatic enough
I could use fantastic
But it is not enough emphasis
Great is too weak, unreal and senseless
I could say you’re beautiful
But that’s too common
Beauty fades but what you have
Is never going away
It’s beyond beauty, uncommon to most women
Women with compassion, knowledge and wisdom
Is of a rare breed
There’s only one word
Powerful enough to describe you
Throughout all eternity
My magnanimously magnificent
Ebony queen
Should there be a language
With no translation for this word
They need only use
Your first name!


“River of Tears”

Shari loved so greatly

Received so little

My love for Shari

Remains Eternal

Eternally Loved

Throughout Time

Shari always giving love

Freely gave away

Personal property, money, food

Satisfying the needs of everyone

Regardless of personal sacrifice

Receiving no love, no recognition

When Shari was in need

All turn their backs on her

All those who Shari loved

Showed no love at all

Who can survive without love

All Shari truly wanted

Was to be loved

Shari departed this world

With the gift from her family

Of a broken heart

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
