Sue and I shared Mama Byrd's name Amanda...and I will miss her. I'm blessed to have gotten to know her better after we got into our fabulous '50's. She and Dallis spent a lot of time with Rita and Hoss ( my parents) when I wasn't able to be there, and their love and generous spirits will not be forgotten. Love to you, Dallis, you were a devoted husband and she knew you were there every day. God bless your spirit and kindness.

Cliff and I were very saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. I remember the times we shared in handbells, and the times we shared at M & J’s. We will remember you as you heal. Jean
