Our beautiful Sharon Driessan aka @Pink66 has peacefully passed. Below is the post put on by her son under her name of facebook letting us know. 

"On Friday at about 9.30pm Sharon passed away. Sahe passed in her sleep and wasn't in any pain. (Apologies for the misconception I typed mum out of habit, but I am Sharon's son Douglas.)"

Sharon was a fighter, an inspirer and a loving mother and friend.

I had the privelege of knowing her away from this site. Always just by modern technology,  we actually first met through weight watchers online.

She will be missed by so many.

RIP Sharon

    Thanks for letting us know. So sad. She was an amazing person. I remember her 'gratefulness' posts. Her photography was amazing too. She made a difference. xxx
