My dear sister, Sue…..
She was a dear sister which I can say about all five siblings. We had so many memories of time past which no one can ever take from us. I can say the same about my brother, one among five sisters. He turned out to be a wonderful man in spite of all us girls. . .so proud to call him my brother. We three were close in age and close as buddies. All my siblings are now in Heaven, thanks to having two super, patient, loving parents.
Love, Mary Logue

I remember the good old days when Sue was a Lady Mountie on the RHS basketball team in the old Gym in the basement...concrete floor. Future husband Bill "Rabbit" Rand was also a standout player at that time for the boy`s team, and Sue`s sister Mary Perry (now Logue) was a RHS fixture later in the (then) half-court `girls game`. A bit later came L.E. Perry Jr...and this writer...at that same Gym...long gone. Kirksey Gym (still there) opened in 1952.
Time passes but memories remain. Sue and so many others or that RHS era will forever be missed...with Sincere Regrets, Gene RHS 1952
