Dear Sis, you were always fun to be with as long as I can remember (your age 3). Wish we could have had more time together. Totally enjoyed every minute. By the way, I know you were born in Muskogee even though I was only one. Love you , dear one. Will miss you. Your loving brother.

Aunt Sue, Always with a smile on her face. Although our visits to OK were few she always made them memorable.
She was an incredible host not letting anyone come away not feeling welcome or part of the family. But Sues greatest connections were always with the kids.
I remember one morning she was making her famous Micky Mouse Waffles and I walked in and she had already made one for my Son Justan. She asked if he wanted one more I said one is enough but Justan announced NO Dad he needs a friend! Without missing a beat Sue turned to me and said “Ya Dad he needs a friend!”
To me that’s Aunt Sue, no matter what, She could turn into a child and connect with them and the jump right back into being a Mom, Grandma, Aunt.
You will always hold a special place in mine and my Family’s heart.
The World is a little sadder with you gone, but Heaven is a lot brighter!
RIP All Our Love,
Daran, Marla, Justan & Britnay Faye.
