Our sincerest condolences to the families of Sue and Snap. The tragic loss of both of them triggered a lot of memories at Lions State convention and meetings. Their presence at Lions events will be missed and as well as Snap's call for raffle tickets. There was nobody better.

I knew Snap and Sue through District 1-H Lions Club service. I consider it a privilege and honor that God allow our paths to cross in life's journey. Snap and Sue were two very wonderful people and they will be missed.
