    Truman and family,

    So sorry to hear about Sue’s recent illness and death. We are currently in Florida so will not be able to attend the service, but want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. May God grant you peace and comfort through this, but also hope in knowing for certain that she is with Him in glory.

    So sorry to hear about Sue’s passing. She was a warm and wonderful lady and will always remember her wonderful smile and pleasant personality. Our prayers are with you all at this trying time. We will be out of town for the visitation and funeral but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Truman, Heather, Heidi and families,

    We are so very sorry to hear that Sue has left you but rejoice in knowing she is with God – she IS smiling and singing – and she is no longer in pain. Phil and I are in Arizona and obviously unable to attend Sue’s Celebration of Life Service. Please know our prayers for added strength and peace are with each of you. You have a lot of friends reaching out to you in love and with concern for you right now. Enjoy the strength they bring to you through their love.

    Our love and prayers, Phil & Barb Hanson
