Sharon X. Cao

August 2, 1989 – June 12, 2005




Sharon (Left) and her sister in 2004 Christmas

Once upon a Christmas Day,
A sense of cheer and joy were in the air,
Music aroused the spirit everywhere.
Decorated trees and colorful lights strung,
On the mantel the children's stockings hung.

Once upon a Christmas Day,
Greetings were extended with smiling faces,
Fond thoughts that my memory embraces,
Many wrapped gifts in full array,
An annual tradition on this Holy Day.

Once upon a Christmas Day,
Sharon was singing from afar,
While in the heaven appeared a bright star.
This Christmas came on a cold day,
Leaving memories that will forever stay.
