Sitting here tonight in a church service remembering Sue. Each moment with her is a treasured memory. Each week I would look forward to her coming into my business. I had the pleasure of being her hairdresser. She blessed me in so many ways. I shared miracles with her and she shared family stories. Whether it was the last experience with the corn crop or a grandchild's game. I knew beyond a doubt that her family was her greatest joy. We had a family who lived in the apartments behind my business, Last Thanksgiving and Christmas that were very much in need. She enlisted everyone she could to assure they would have a wonderful holiday season in spite of their great trial. Every week she brought a ray of sunshine into my salon. The other clients loved her as well. We have a big empty spot at 2 o'clock on Fridays. I can't imagine how each of you who were closest to her are continuing. A life cut way too short. My love and prayers are with each of you.
