    Sue and her sister Bobbie were neighbors when we were growing up….. spending our days together and most of the time dancing in my living room…. My heart is very heavy… but I know she is in a better place… There are so many wonderful memories of her that I will hold dear to my heart……… I’m so very sorry for her family ….. May God comfort each of you…
