We had a lot of laughs, Sue and I, and a lot in common, such as sharing our birthday on the 9th of September. and our son’s births. I’ll always remember climbing through the closet to get to her side of the house to chat and watch soaps during the day when the girls were in school, and then her girls would climb through my window from the porch roof to visit with me when Sue was was most likely in bed. Good times that are gone but cherished. Hold your memories close. Mom’s are so special!
