    To this day I can honestly say Sue was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met in my life. Mike and Sue were the first people I ever met when I was adopted and came to America and were the only people to stand by my parents side when I was baptized at PVUMC, 22 years ago. Most of my childhood memories include Sue which I will cherish forever. I really wish I could have seen her again but without a doubt I know where she is- heaven! I love you both Mike and Sue, and you will always have a special place in my heart!

    Mike, I'am so sorry about your loss. Hope you remember me from Rehab. You were such a blessing. My daughter Heather Smith went to be with the lord back in May. We used this funeral home and it was the best they really made you feel like they care. May God be with you through this very difficult time.
