  • Dear Leroy and family
    I just today learned of Sue’s going home to the Lord. Andrea and Aubri, Ava, and I send our very deepest sympathy. She suffered much and our Heavenly Father knew that, so He relived her suffering and called her home. We as humans cannot understand these things very well, but we must Trust that HE id on control of everything. Again, we are very sorry.
