Mary Drabenstadt.
George,Carolyn and family,
It is with great sadness that I am typing this note to you. I am so sorry that I did not know about Sue. I saw her about 6 years ago at the June art show in Boiling Springs and we had a very nice chat. It was so good to see and talk with her for awhile. I had many good times with Sue and I am just so very sorry she had to go through all of this, it just breaks my heart. Sue loved all of you so very much and she knew that you all loved her also. She took such good care of your Mother. I know that she is with your parents in heaven and will not ever have to suffer anymore. Let your wonderful memories of Sue comfort you now through these difficult times. I will never forget her.
