An Angel too Soon

On December 26, 2015 tornadoes touched ground in the DFW area along with flooding and thunderstorms. Within a short time period the tornadoes claimed 11 lives and destroyed many homes and buildings.

Among the 11 lives lost in the tornado my cousin Sharva Sanders was one of them.

Coming from Royce City, Texas Sharva, her boyfriend and one other passenger were caught in the path of the EF-4 tornado when it hit. Sharva’s death was due to multiple injuries and a multiple automobile accident due to the tornado. Her boyfriend had to be cut out of their vehicle. The way the other passenger was rescued from the vehicle is unknown.

Both the boyfriend and other passenger are in critical condition.

Hearing the news this morning I had to question it. I didn’t think it was real. I told myself I would get that I would get a response from her on Facebook like I always do saying she’s alright but I know I’m not. It breaks my heart that the tornado took her away from her 3 children (ages 22, 11, & 7) and her 2 grandchildren (2 & on the way).She also left behind her mother, father and many other family members from different states and friends.  I could only imagine what her kids and her mother feel right now.

Sharva was one of the sweetest people you could meet! She had a sense of humor that was out of this world and at was all packed in a 4ft 10in body!  She is loved and truly missed by all that knew her. Rest in Paradise Sharva M. Sanders! I love you and miss you dearly!



 “Heaven needed an angel and god sent for you, You are gone from me forever, Now what am I to do, I miss you now like never before, But I have to let you go, I will never forget you and this I need you to know, My heart breaks of sadness for the one that I adore, Your father in heaven has sent for you and he needs you more, Goodbye until we meet again, in my heart you’ll always be, For always you will remain my sweetest memory.”

    I met Sharva last year after a funeral. She was so down to earth. I don’t know how long she and my cousin Morris were together. I do know that she was loved by the Carr and extended families. Therefore I say she’ll be missed not only by her blood family. She’ll be missed by us too. As the title goes an angel gone too soon is fitting.


  7. I met this young lady in the year of 2003 I believe where myself and my sister both were introduce to Sharva . I just remember how a beautiful spirit she had and all the laughter we shared together. She made my time at telvista very memorable because I hated that job but when working with Sharva made me forget about the negative of the job. She would crack jokes and have me in tears and before I knew it my 8 hrs day was over. So Thank you Sharva:):)!!! Throughout the years me sharva kept coming into contact after leaving Telvista, a couple years later we end up staying in the same apartment complex for a few years, and even though we never got the chance to really hang out, I can say ever encounter I had with Sharva we would end of talking for hours lol. She would say, ” girl why we keep finding each other “lol. But I hate that I didn’t get too, because she was a great person to be around and will definitely be missed. I send special prayers to her beautiful children and family. Definitely a Angel!!! 😦
