    Sue was such a wonderful person with a gentle heart. I am so glad to have known her & remember so many special times. I am so glad that when we went to Branson we were able to come, pick her up & enjoy some shows. I will always remember her dancing at Baylor’s Island party when David Crowder performed & think of her when his song is played. Her Bunko roll is legendary! She was kind to everyone she met & truly a child of God. My heart goes out to her family members & many friends. She will be missed…
