Sue. Such a great lady. I used to visit you as you lived right around the corner on Holland Avenue. I know you are celebrating with Eldon and Jim. And Nancy and Charles and so many others ...such a great reunion. I love you Sue. Sorry I didn't see you more often. Love to Martin and all the family. Prayers and condolences. I love you. Dad is glad to see you too I bet. What a crowd. Seeing Jesus must be the best of all. Love you, Steve and Kathie
