Sue was a very "special friend" of mine in 8th and 9th grades. We not only attended school, but also church together. In my memory, she always had an extraordinary place in my heart.
My prayers extend to her family, especially her brother, children and grandchildren. She was a sweet, kind, caring and love-filled lady. We are all blessed to have had her in our lives. She will be missed tremendously!

Sue was such an inspiration. So strong and fought the cancer so hard. Her family and her faith were of upmost importance to her. On February 5th, just days before she left for her heavenly home, she wrote on her Facebook page:
“I woke up this morning thankful for another day and God's presence in my heart. The peace He provides me when I have no more strength emotionally and physically is a miracle. I can't explain it but I know He loves me.
My family caters to all my needs so I have no worries of how to manage to get my chipped ice or what medicine to take. My granddaughter's that entertain me and make me laugh. I am so rich with love. This is what life is about.
Live each day with a thankful heart for the little things and your life will be blessed!”

I loved her and will miss her so much.
