I have so many great memories working the concession stand at St. Joe with Mrs. Flanigan or â€œMomâ€ as we called her. She was always so happy and kept us laughing. She will be missed. Prayers for you all.
So sorry for your loss Terrie. Fond memories of your mother. God bless.
Sue was a precious soul and was a significant saint in the First UMC. She loved her Sunday School class, her friends, and was always so kind and generous to everyone. I will always be grateful for the gift of her compassion and the warmth she brought to the nursing home ministry. She would sing â€œYou are my sunshine â˜€ï¸â€. She was so positive and gave everyone a reason to smile in our lives. Thank you for sharing your precious mother with all of us. Thank you Lord for the gift of your beloved Sue, her life that in your love will never end. Peace be with.
