She was preceded in death by her “cherished grandson” Jason Allgood

Her family would like to give special thanks to Kathy and Bobby Walker for their love and devotion.

Bud, Bucky, Ricky and David, I am so sorry for our loss. I am glad I talked to her recently and wish I had been quicker to send her the picture of Grandma I promised. I just got it from the store. She was like the sister I never had and I loved her dearly loved her. She is with the angels now and they will take care of her. Love and deepest sympathy to all of you. Katie

Dear Uncle Bud, Bucky, Ricky, and David,

I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Susie. I have nothing but fond memories staying at the Allgood house when I was young. She certainly is in good company with Ruth and my mother Joan.

All my love,

Heaven has a wonderful addition,
So many memories - her voice as she called from the open door to come in for dinner, her awesome chile, and that look she gave us when we needed it, all the boys knew it well.
Bud thank you for bringing your family to be our neighbors and friends to Faulk Rd so many years ago, Sue was loved by us all and will be greatly missed. Buck,Rick and David your mom put up with alot of stuff from all of us, she was a special lady and we were all blessed to have her. In the arms of the angels, may you find comfort there.
Thank you and God bless you Sue Allgood,
