    I will miss her , but am left with so many fond memories of her & John. Through the years when they came to visit Sue, we had them over for dinners & took them out to eat. Good memories are the next best thing. Sue can be happy & proud of the good daughter she was to her parents..My love, thoughts, & prayers are with Sue & her daughters.
    Love
