    Sue was always concerned about others. She called our home several times if a fire was anywhere in the vicinity…even if it was 20 miles away! She built a beautiful family legacy of individuals whom we cherish. Thanks, Sue. You fought the good fight.. Blessings to the family as you recall her and the gift she was to everyone who knew her. Cathy & Walt Cook
