    We did not know Sue very long but she made us feel like she we had been family for life. She truly touched our hearts and will always have a place there. We will treasure every short moment we had with her. There is a reason God lets such beautiful people into your life, whether it is for a long time or for such a short time. Sometimes we just don’t understand why he brings such a beautiful soul into our lives and then takes them away so quickly. We thank God we got to have this beautiful soul in our lives, even if for such a short time. Till we see you again Sue, fly high on those wings you have earned. We love you dearly.
