I will always remember our special trips to Rock Lake Pool every time Aunt Sue came to visit. We enjoyed a great day of swimming and picnicking. What fun we had!! You will be missed by all .My deepest sympathy to Hershell, Steven, Jennifer and Kathryn

Hershel and family, We share your sorrow in the passing of Sue. We always enjoyed reading her perspective on your travel adventures. She certainly contributed greatly to her community with her intelligence and kindness. Her passing will be recognized in the worship service Sunday and we will continue to pray that you may feel the peace and comfort of the Holy Spirit throughout the coming days.

I wish I had the ability to put into words how I feel. I have been so conflicted because of my inability to come to Utah. One side is screaming because I would love to be there. The other calm because I feel this is where I need to be and also want to be.  

My big sister is gone from here--no longer as close as a phone call. I miss her. I have always known that she would do anything for me and I told her so. Even when she knew she was dying, she called me to tell me goodbye. She would occasionally send me a little surprise, the last of which was a soft, comfortable winter scarf that she thought I would enjoy--and I do! I believe she will still try to do things to surprise and please me.

We enjoyed a lot of adventures together. One that stands out in my mind is a road trip in our little Ford Ranger red truck. We drove south to Beaufort, South Carolina to find and visit the Gullah Nation. Just for fun and adventure, we slept one night in the back of the truck on the Walmart parking lot in North Carolina. What a fun and crazy trip!

I love my sister and will miss her terribly and will look forward to seeing her again, but not too soon!     

Hershel, Steve, Jennifer, Kathryn--I love you all. Linda
