Sherri and Scott,

I am so sorry about "Mama Sue" as Erin called her. She was such a loving grandmother to Erin, as I knew her through working with Erin. I just heard about it and want to let Erin know I am thinking about her. I don't know your address or I would send Erin a card. Please tell Erin I am so sorry about the loss of "Mama Sue" and that I am thinking about her, praying for her, and still miss her at school.

Sue was a beautiful Lady, inside and out. She will be missed just as much as her wonderful husband, Charles, has been. They were wonderful neighbors and I know they are together in heaven now.

My mother is almost 93 years old and lives at The Landmark Community. Your mom visited her on a regular basis, and Mother loved Sue and looked forward to seeing her. I knew Sue even way back in the 1960's when she worked in the printing business with your grandfather. I was editor of the Hi-Boone, Booneville High School's newspaper. Hodges Printing printed it for us, so I saw your mom often. She was a sweet and caring person back then, and she still had those wonderful qualities all the way to the end of her life. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. My husband and I want you to know that we are thinking about you and your entire family and remembering you in our prayers during this difficult time in your lives. From Larry and Joyce Morgan

Scott and Sherri, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, but even though the world is darker today, we know that heaven is truly aglow. I know Sue has gone to her well deserved reward. She was truly a wonderful woman who practiced what she preached. Believe me, if anyone knew her reaction to a bad situation, I truly do. I will always keep her in my memories. If there is someway I can take some of the sting out of this, please feel free to call on me. I will do what I can............Much Love to You Guys.
