So many wonderful memories of Aunt Sue. I will always remember her as a very positive happy person. When I was a kid she always knew how to make even the smallest events a fun thing. I sure enjoyed those fishing trips to Canada with her. She makes me Smile! God Bless all of you. A precious lady will Rest In Peace with our Lord and Savior.
