    I was not able to make it for the service today, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. I have fond memories of Aunt Sue and always liked her sense of humor. I am so glad I was able to talk to her this summer. She will be missed!

    Kevin, Kelly and Susan,
    May the Lord comfort you in the loss of both of your parents in less than a year. I am sorry I won’t be able to join you today. I have many fond memories of our childhood, including your Mom having to serve as referee or figuring out just what we disagreed on. She wasn’t fearful of sending me home if necessary, my Mom never questioned her decisions. Your dad even took me along on a fishing trip to a private pond. We went out in the water in a row boat. I don’t think he caught anything, we were along for the ride. It was good to reconnect briefly with them one evening in Lawrence about 10 years ago or so. I’ll be praying for you. ken keane

    Susan, Chris, Erin & families,
    The world lost one of its brightest sparks with Sue’s passing. I heard many stories from Betty about their fun times together in Leavenworth.
    I’m grateful for her reaching out to me these last few years – sharing tea, stories and news about all of you. Sue was so proud of her children and grandchildren. She found humor in all things and her laugh was infectious. Please know I’m thinking of you and remembering Sue and Ken.

    May the family find comfort in loving memories, and in knowing that God is “close to those that are broken at heart; and he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon “swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) With deepest sympathy.

    So sorry to hear about your mom and dad. They were our role models as kids growing up on Chestnut st.
