  1. I’m so sorry our friendship was not as close the last few years. I miss you so much. My world is a little less colorful without you in it. Hug Belvie for me. I love you!

  2. We worked together many years ago. I remember going to the movies with you and Belva. A sweet soul/

  3. To my precious ? cousin, you were always a precious person and so giving. I know you and Belva will find many rewards in your heavenly home as you gave much on Earth. You will be remembered for your life of faith and service.

  4. I remember Sue and her involvement with the Newton Crop Walk. What an endearing obit about the love of Sue and her sister, Belva!

  5. To Linda and family: My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I can’t imagine the incredible void you must all be feeling. At the same time, what a beautiful celebration it must be in heaven for Sue to have arrived! Like everyone, I too cannot imagine Belva and Sue without the other! Heaven definitely gained another beautiful angel! Having grown up in the First Christian Church, they were part of our family just as much as I felt I was part of yours. I loved Sue and Belvie and will never forget the many blessings they never once hesitated to pay forward, nor the many ways in which they impacted my life. They were “one of the good eggs” that I’m incredibly grateful for! ❤️
