I was very sorry to hear that Sue had passed away. We had many pleasant talks over the years we knew one another. She was a fine lady and a dedicated Christian.
I am sending prayers to the whole family as you grieve for your dear Mother. I enjoyed my conversations with Sue each time I had the opportunity to visit her with Karen. May you all carry memories of your Mother in your thoughts and hearts as you continue with your life.
Peace be with all.

God is my Rock and my salvation!
My Momma was a rock in our relationship, during this life journey on earth.
I will miss our telephone calls and visits.
She played a dual role in raising me.
I will always have loving memories of her enduring love and devotion, for me as well as all her family.
She loved life and saw good days, even though she had grown weary and was ready to go home.
She served her Lord faithfully!
I know that I will be with her in eternity!
Don’t think of her as gone away, her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of her as resting from her troubles and her cares, in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing that we could know today, that nothing but our sadness can really pass away. Think of her as living, in the hearts of those she touched. For nothing loved is ever lost. And she was loved so much.
I’m so sorry to read of Sue’s passing. Although, she was more than ready to go be with Jesus and her family! Sue was a special lady and friend! Hadn’t seen her in awhile, but thought of she and Yodi often!
God Bless all of you who are left behind….she loved you all dearly!
