Thanks for the nice article on Sharon. Just one quick correction, Sharon's Father was P.J. (Paul J.) Tate (not T.J.)
These are very nice remembrances and I enjoyed reading them and will pass them on to Sharon's sister Debra. I encourage anyone with memories of Sharon to contact me : webmaster@sharontate.net or tatefamilylegacy@gmail.com

Thanks for the information. I thought maybe I had made a typo but the original article does say T.J. I will add a note to that article.

Thank you. It's just a minor thing. It was very nice to read the article. Thank you, again, for posting it.

Very interesting to see so many celebrities with ties to El Paso. She would've been a great mother I'm sure. :)

Rest In Peace Sharon and baby boy.
What a horrible ending for such a beautiful woman and her innocent child. According to The Internet Movie Database, her sister Debra was born in El Paso.

You can see Sharon's former home by going to Google.com and selecting Maps. From there enter the address "9303 Roanoke El Paso, Tx 79924" in the search box. Then click on "Street View".
I lived just 4 miles from Sharon and attended neighboring Andress High School.

CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY INFORMATION ON THE HOMICIDE/SUICIDE INVOLVING DR. WALTER DALE EASTMAN? I BELIEVE THE INCIDENT OCCURRED IN JULY OF 2007. I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE DATE.

The shooting occurred on July 1, 2007.

From a July 2 article on the shooting:

About 1:15 p.m. Sunday, police were called to the 6300 block of La Posta Drive for an unknown problem.

Once there, they found a man, age 49, had apparently shot and killed his 29-year-old wife before he killed himself, police spokesman Officer Chris Mears said.

From July 3:

Police on Monday identified the couple involved in Sunday's apparent murder-suicide in an upscale West Side neighborhood as a long-time dentist and his wife of seven years -- a part-time criminal justice professor at the University of Texas at El Paso.

Officials believe Walter Dale Eastman, 49, shot his wife, Joni Eastman, 29, and then turned the gun on himself about 1:15 p.m. Sunday.

Police spokesman Javier Sambrano said no other details about the incident in the 6300 block of La Posta Drive were available.

"We still believe it was a murder-suicide," Sambrano said Monday. "But we won't be able to confirm that until the investigation and the autopsies are completed."
