Denise, Dannette and Danny,
I am out of town and cannot attend your mom’s funeral. I want you to know how very sorry and shocked I was to hear of her passing.
Although we had lost contact for a few years, we connected on FaceBook earlier in the year. Your mom was such a treasure. She worked for me for over 30 years and we became friends. While I was off from work for 10 years and then once I retired we spent part of each visit talking and catching up on both of our families. We laughed and sometimes cried together.
I know how she will be missed by you and her grandchildren.
Love, Sue Barlow
