Memories Timeline


  1. Sue was my sister in law but she was more like a sister. Even over the years she has stayed special to me.

  2. Sue was a sweet & special friend . She will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathy to all her family & friends

  3. I can’t say every thing I would like to say, but we pretty much talked about everything. I’m setting here, like waiting for your name and number to show up on my phone, I’m going to miss our just about every day conversations, but most of all I miss you sis. I love and loved you so much, we’ve been together all our lives Sister. Y’all I’m so sorry for such a wonderful great person. My heart breaks for each and everyone of you. Cotton and you children were her very top priority. We will see her again. I love you all and wish I could have been there, but I promised her I wouldn’t make that trip. She would rather see me and me see her alive. God bless all of you and know that Jesus has another precious Angel. No more crying pain and suffering for our beautiful Angel that we had on this earth. Praying for peace and comfort from the good Lord above.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
