  1. Sue was a very sweet lady that I cooked for several times and she was so nice to tell me how much she enjoyed the meals and I really appreciated that! I’m sorry she’s gone. My prayers go out to the family and her dear husband.

  2. Dear Fred,

    Baseball and SABR brought us together and while we never got to know Sue, we’ve seen the long struggle you’ve endured as Sue’s health declined. You were faithful to her care and you and your family have our prayers as you now say good-bye.

    With much sympathy,

    Dan and Jean Ardell
