I am so sad to learn my dear friend has passed away. Sue was such a good neighbor & friend when we lived in Corinth. She was always so soft spoken
(Unlike me) and impeccably dressed. We had really good times going to a few neighborhood Christmas parties. The last time I saw her was when she was passing thru Birmingham & we met for coffee! I will miss her, but God
surely needed another beautiful angel! Rest In Peace, my dear friend💞
Tay & family & Terre & family, my heartfelt sympayhy in your loss. She dearly loved you all. Sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral, but I am there in thought & prayers. Love to you all.
Warmest regards,
Anne Hood
