I don't even know where to begin. My Aunt Sue was amazing. From spending the weekends and going to church to our Friday nights and many family dinners of tacos and pizzas. But one of my favorite is receiving the most amazing gifts that she would crochet or sew. Putting her heart and soul into them. I'm going to miss you so much. There is also the great week that it was just you and me going to Kansas, the train making you sick. Thank you for being the greatest Aunt in the world. I love you.
