  2. Wow, what a great heritage. What a wonderful Christian Woman and Mother. I’m sorry for your loss, but tickled to death for your Mom’s final resting place with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a good example for us to follow in her faithful life. I can say with a certainty that she raised two great son’s. While we will miss her presence here on earth, know that she is much better off now than she was. Should you need anything please do not hesitate to call on me.

  5. Sue was the sweetest , kindest lady I have ever met. At the same time she was a spunky lady who knew her own mind and blazed her own trail. I admired her so much. It always a delight to visit her. She will be sorely missed! I loved her so much.

  8. Dear Family,
    We have such found memories of your mother from our days at the Alliance church. She was always a beautiful woman on the outside but more importantly the inside. May you all find comfort in her faith in the Savior and the knowledge that we will join her on that great day in heaven. Prayers for all of you.
