Rodney and family, we are so sorry for your loss of Sue. She was such a happy jovial person and loved everything she was doing. We knew you from square dancing and she had the best time. Made everyone feel welcome and comfortable.May her soul rest in peace.

Rodney, Donna, Mike and Holly, So sorry to hear of Sue's 'home-going'.It helps me if I don't think of her as being gone from us, but that she is still living - just in heaven.It is odd how we can yearn for a place where we have never yet been, but the Bible tells us enough about heaven that we understand that it is real.Life is eternal and there is rest for those whose hope is in Him.For Sue the battle with cancer was short, for which we can give thanks.But harder for those of you left behind.Tom and I have been praying for you and your loved ones.Tom and Linda (Gephart) Jones, SD

So sorry, Hilary and Rod, for your loss--so glad we had the chance to meet your wonderful Mom--I see her smile in your smile--I hear her laughter in your laugh--she'll always be in your heart and your thoughts--sorry it was so hard for her in the end but she's at peace now and so proud of you--you now have a special angel watching over you--warm hugs and peace to you both
