Grandma sue,

You were definitely something special I've never met a more charismatic witty and most of all feisty women, but we wouldn't have traded you for the world. I still don't want to believe it's real, I promise to keep your spirit and memory alive.

I will miss you yelling at me to stop biting my nails and lord help me if I didn't, I will miss our late night 2 hour phone calls, I will miss your guidance & love. The list can go on for years.

Luke 23:43
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.

I love and miss you so much grandma but I promise to talk to you every night, until we meet again ❤️

My condolences to the entire Dean family, you guys are in my thoughts and prayers.

To Sue's Family with Heartfelt Sympathy,

It is never easy to let go and say last farewell to someone who has meant more than any words can tell...
But may it bring some comfort and help ease your sorrow, too, to know that warmest thoughts are there with every one of you.
Blessings and hugs, Fran & Harold Secord

Love, Pierre Biever
