Sue & Wayne were our dear friends, card-playing buddies and wonderful people.
We will miss them terribly but will always remember the fun & special times we had together.
We can still hear Sue's special laugh & giggle which was so refreshing.

So sorry for the loss of your mom! She was a very special lady. Your family has been very dear to me for as long as i can remember. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days and weeks. God bless........

Wayne and Sue were sweethearts to one another and to those of us who knew and loved them as friends. They were a joy to know and much loved ❤️
They were always upbeat and smiling when we saw them, but hard to catch as they were often on the go!
Sue and I exchanged little treasures we found for one another at garage sales. She enjoyed my finds of turtle items.
I recently scored a small quilt with turtles and was looking forward to surprising her when visitation opened up. Now it will be a reminder for me of our friendship.
I pray it is a comfort and source of strength to know she is safe in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus.
Sandy and Barney Blilie, Norm McBride (Union Chapel friends)
