I have many happy memories of my Aunt Sue. Sure absolutely loved her family. She could scout out a yard sale or special deal. I still have a glass bottle she gave me from one of her finds. She will be gratefully missed. Loved her!! My dear cousins, Donna, Russell and Roger please know I love each of you. I don’t care what age your parents are when you lose them,it’s just tough! The solace we have is knowing she is with the Lord and we will see her again! I will be praying for you!❤️❤️❤️
