Sue has always been a very special lady to me. One thing I can say is she always knew who I was and I will always remember her. Her beautiful smile and the sparkle in her eyes. Until we meet again.
I love you... God Bless 💜

Sue visited me in a dream last week. We were siting in an old car in a snowstorm at the intersection at Chestnut Grove. We didn't speak and when I awoke I had a feeling she had passed. The dream triggered many memories of days spent together growing up. Of saturdays' spent at the movies, Sundays at Church and the rest of the week spent in the one room school house with Mrs Thomas or Miss Korb. I was blessed to spend a portion of my childhood and teen years with Sue and her family. Life sent us separate ways but I will always remember her smile, her voice and her laugh. Sending wishes for peace and comfort to her family and friends at his time of loss. Eileen Hatten Knox

Carol,
So very sorry to hear about your loss. I have fond memories of your mother from an elementary sleep over at your house. I also remember the time she spent caring for my Grandma Shaw during her final years. Praying for you and your family.
God Bless
