Below are samplings of the comments I regularly receive upon completion and delivery of my clients' work:
Althea the Potbelly Pig
This urn and suncatcher was commissioned to honor a special soul, who is dearly missed by her Mom.
Althea and her "milk mustache".
And this is what I recieved from the clicent:
I NEEDED to send this to you tonite........... I'm not sure if you can click on it (David's picture) and make it larger to see the emotion on David's face. It was heart wrenching, to say the least. The urn is absolutely gorgeous and is a perfect place for it to be. Althea is at home now. "
Another Tribute to
a fellow stained glass artist.
For this urn, I was again contacted by a former client of Kathy Delong. And again, the client (Luann) asked if I would be willing to work with her in creating an urn for her Gypsi, based on Kathy's work.. Kathy had made an urn for another one of Luann's baby's, Haley. And again, I wholeheartedly embraced the challenge. This was the outcome...
"Sharon, Gypsi’s urn is beautiful. It really looks like water. I love it. Thank you so much for giving her a beautiful place to rest."

My new Aussie friends:
Hi Sharon , Sorry for our late reply in getting back to you,
Marlene from PA - little did we know that we have so very much in common - not only in the way we feel about our babes, but so many coincidences as to where we are both from. A one in a million twist of fate connected us.
Marlene wrote on Facebook:
"From the first phone call from Sharon, I knew that our sweet Guinness was in capable, empathetic and caring hands. Sharon made this horrific time easier for us. Her kindness and compassion were, and still are, exemplary."
"Sharon was able to walk us through the entire process and we knew,
without a doubt, that the urn we had chosen was going to be just beautiful.
Once we received the urn, you cannot imagine the happiness we felt. The urn
was beyond our wildest dreams and expectations; Guinness truly has a
beautiful forever resting place. His urn stands proudly on an antique piece
of furniture that an be seen by all as soon as you enter our home. Although
taken from us much too young, Guinness now is resting peacefully in a true
piece of art. Sharon, we cannot thank you enough for the absolutely
beautiful Kitty Angel urn and even more than that, for the friendship that
has developed through this sad time in our lives. With love, Joe and Marlene
The pics are beautiful and friends that have seen it just think your work is outstanding. Thanks so very much.

A short while ago I was approached by a client, Karen, who asked for my help in creating an urn for her kitty, Jopi. She asked if I would be willing to work with her in creating the urn based on another artist's work whose name was, Kathy Delong. I came to find out that Kathy had recently passed, and so was no longer available to help her.
Basically, Karen wanted me to recreate an urn that would match the one that Kathy had done for her kitty, Haley. I embraced the opportunity to push my creativeness, as this was not the style I was used to working in.
Although I never knew her, I did have one contact with her. It was an email from her years ago when I was first getting started as a web presence. And now years later, a client of hers contacts me for help in recreating her work. This, in and of itself, to me, is an amazing coincidence. By being open to this, I had a truly wonderful experience, and an opportunity to honor Kathy also. I actually think in some ways, she was right there soldering with me .
This was the style created in honor of artist Kathy Delong...
Jopi's Urn - Sharon Long
"Hi Sharon – I picked up Jopi’s urn this morning at the post office, it is even more stunning in person than in the photos - I cried when I saw it! Thank you so very much for your kindness, beautifully detailed work, willingness to design the urn I was asking for, and for creating a lovely final resting place for Jopi. I absolutely love it, it honors his spirit so well. "
"Oh Sharon, it’s Perfect!!! I LOVE it, you did an amazing job!!! Thank you SO much! I honestly gasped when I saw it, it’s lovely."
"I want to thank you again for being open and willing to work on a project based on someone else’s, not all artists would do that and I truly appreciate it."

"I received the urns today. They are even more beautiful than I
imagined. I can't express to you how happy I am with your work. The
colors are perfect! You did such an amazing, fantastic job and please
tell the portrait artist how the paintings really capture Duke and
Furnie's spirits . Sometimes pictures don't portray the essence of
pets, but these ones really do. And so do the urns themselves.
Everything came together so nicely! I was expecting the portraits to
Be more generic but they aren't at all. Wow! These urns are SO beautiful
and I love them so much. They look really great side-by-side, too. I
love the colors we picked. I'm so happy!!!!!!!! Sharon, you are such an
amazing artist, the detail on the urns is beautiful, you are very skilled and creative.
I told you my ideas, but you really gave them life.
Thank you so much, I am so pleased. The urns give me a very comforting
sense of closure, Duke and Furknick finally have their resting places.
I'll get your check in the mail tomorrow.
- "Pam and Angels Duke and Furknick, who are proud to have their cremains in such beautiful urns."
"Max's urn looks so beautiful. I love it. The three butterflies look so pretty and I think the candle glowing will be very spiritual and healing. I can't thank you enough for being there and creating such a lovely environment for Max - my beautiful Golden Retriever. Take good care of yourself and know that I think of you often & your compassion at a time when I needed the caring so much. I am glad that we continued to be friends. "
"To everything Golden,"
Momma Cat's Urn
"I want blue, to remind me of how Mama cat would only drink water from the bathroom sink faucet. Purple to remind me of how she healed my aching heart. Red for the love we gave each other and Green to remind me of her beautiful eyes."
Thank you again for your sweet spirit and the beautiful talent that you have chosen to share with me in creating Momma Cat's urn.”

"I feel at peace knowing that Jake will be with me in his beautiful resting place forever. "
My solace is that my baby's soul is now unfettered by an underdeveloped body and has eyes to view the beauty of the world from above" - Marie Guziejka
