Cousins,

Sorry, I couldn't be there to share all the great memories of Sue. She lived her life to the fullest and she loved her family & friends.
The last time I saw Sue was in Labadie 2009, when she spoke of her family I can see the love & pride in her eyes & in her words.
May the great memories of her keep her alive in your hearts.
You have a special guardian angel.
Martin & family I send y'all hugs & kisses & my love.

I wish to send prayers of condolence and comfort to Martin, Shane, David and all the family at this difficult time.

Also thanking you for the opportunities I had as a friend of Marsha (and the rest of the Thompson clan) to be included as "family" in many gatherings, especially around the holidays. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone enjoy good food and company at those times.

May you rest in the peace of God's eternal love Sue, knowing that you have "fought the good fight, and run the race" to the finish, and have now won a crown of eternal happiness.

Love to you all ... I am with you in spirit today!

There are those people who you call friend that have made a lasting impression on your life even though you haven't seen them for years. Sue was one of those friends for me. We spent a lot of time at the baseball field for sure but enjoyed other times with her mom and at each other's homes. Sue taught me how to make roux so that I could fix squirrel gumbo for my boys which they loved. I learned to drink coffee at her house because people in the area never offered you anything else. Sue was also our youngest son's godmother.

I will miss her just because I know that I can't Facebook her anymore. My love and condolences to Martin, Shane, David and the family. She was a lovely person ...full of love for her family (And baseball of course).

I don’t think that I have a single ballpark memory that doesn’t include Mrs.Sue and Mr.Martin. She was the yin to his yang and my prayers go out to him for losing his lifelong love. To the rest of the Thompson family, my heartfelt prayers go out to all of you. May you lean on the Lord and each other to learn how to navigate this time of loss. Heaven sure got a lot sweeter. Love y’all! ☮️❤️🙏🏼
