You will be greatly missed, I find comfort in knowing you are with Dad once again. Thank you Evelyn for tolerating all the crazy! Keeping us alive when we got out of hand, and All the fun at the lake! You will always be the catfish charmer and Grandma down by the lake... I will never see a dragonfly and not think of you... ?

Sue was like a second mother to me, especially during high school. She would force me to eat and relax at her house, never minding when I inevitably overstayed my welcome, and continued to treat me as family over the 25 years I knew her. Words are insufficient. Love and condolences to the family, love to you all.
