Sue was a good friend of mine. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. I had the Burger Barn in Eustace, and that’s how we met. We had many talks and laughs in the six years I knew her. She gave me a little angel about 8 years ago, and told me to always keep it with me. And it’s still in my purse today. I love you Sue’ and will see you again one day.

Your mom was a special lady to me. I grew to know how sweet she was when she worked at “Kay’s “. She was always trying to set me up with Blake, even though he was already taken. It never failed that she would stop what she was doing and visit with me. Made me feel special. I have thought of her often over the years and are sorry for your loss. Beatrice Carr.
