Dear Millie and all of Sue's family, please expect my deepest sympathy. I have fond memories of Sue and how she is with her Jesus. What place could be better then in His arms! May God give you peace to fill the empty spot in heart where Sue is.

Sue's Family,
Condolences. God is good all of the time. Sue, a bright light for Jesus, I lit a candle to honor her as she worked so hard for Jesus, not an easy task, for those who dismissed this crusade. God be with you all.
