I remember many great Easter egg hunts with all the cousins in Aunt Sue's backyard growing up. Their backyard was a magical forest and I so enjoyed playing in the ferns and bushes. We would always gather outside to eat our family dinners over the years as our family grew. I also loved playing football at the middle school track as we would jump her back fence to get there. Her husband Benny was also so entertainng, especially when she would scold him. Their banter was the best. I am so sad for us, but happy she will be with Benny, Grandma and Grandpa Westerman, my grandpa, and Cliff. Sorry I cannot be there, but I am thinking of everyone as they say goodbye. She will be missed. I only wish I could've seen her one last time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all. I will miss my Aunt Sue very much. I loved spending summers in Florida. I always got to spend time with her going shopping or to the beach was the best!!! We both fell asleep one time and got a crazy sunburn. She was the best cook ever, no one could make her salads!!!!! She always gave you her full attention. I know heaven is a much sweeter place!!!! Love always and forever her niece Lisa
