From: Linda Colwell Mar 8 2020 11:15PM Sue you were like a sister to me. Our kids grew up together and we had so many good times.
Life without you leaves a void in my life. Best friends that are like family are such a blessing and you were such a blessing to Gary and I. I smile when I think of all the laughs we had and how many talks we shared. I will miss you and someday we will be together again. God has you as angel now and you were an angel in my life here on earth. This is to say I love you and we will meet again.
Love Linda and Gary
