  1. I’m so sorry to hear that Ms. Sue passed away. We lived beside her on crest drive and my son, Tyson, use to go over and watch westerns with her. Such a dear, sweet lady.

  2. Dear Kim,

    Connie and I were sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We know the sorrow you must be feeling now, but hope the happy memories of your beautiful “Coca Cola” Mom will give your comfort.

    Bill and Connie

  3. I’m so sorry for your loss. I was so shocked and saddened by the news. Sue and I worked at the Montgomery County Health Department. She taught me about living, loving, caring and how to survive a broken heart. Sending many prayers and much love! May you reply on God for comfort and peace.
