    My mom and Sue were the best of friends.
    I know that my mom Leslie was up at the Pearl gates waiting for your mom.
    So sorry for your loss.

    Words cannot express how very sorry I am to hear about Sue’s passing. I have known her my entire life. She was a great friend, loving mother, hard worker and an animal lover. I know that Sue and mom are having a amazing time together in heaven now. With deepest sympathy, Heather Bradley
