  1. Some years ago eight young women met to start a bridge group. Although not everyone knew each other well, little did we realize we would form a bond of love and friendship that has lasted almost 50 years. Sue was in that group and through the years we have laughed and cried through the joys and sorrows of life. We send our love to Floyd, Jana and the rest of the family.

  2. Sue and Floyd have been my friends my whole life, and wonderful friends to my grandparents, Wayne & Fairy, for many, many years. I was lucky enough to have an extra set of grandparents in Sue & Floyd as I grew up. And as an adult they would visit me at my job, attended my wedding, were by my side after my children were born, and at all the birthday parties since then. I loved Sue dearly and I will miss her always. Love to the family.

  3. May God Bless the Offill family. May the memories of Cora Sue continue to be shared with family and friends. Our thoughts are prayers are with you.

  4. I do not remember my life without Cora Sue Offill. She and Floyd and Jana camped with our family when we were all young. It was Floyd and his unending patience who taught us to water ski and Cora Sue was there to give us positive reinforcements even though we drank up half the lake in the process! Their family had great fun with our large family, allowing Jana to become a sibling to the nine of us.
    To sit and visit with Cora Sue was always so easy, comfortable and enjoyable. And we never ran out of things to talk about! I always remember feeling welcomed in her home -no matter my age or state in life. When my husband and I flew to Amarillo to meet the birthmother of our son, Cora Sue and Floyd welcomed us with open arms to stay in their home, share that special time with us and pray for us as we began our journey as parents.
    As I know she does for so many, Cora Sue holds a very special place in my heart. She was and is loved so very much.
    While our hearts are sad, I am comforted to know we share in the love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and we will see our friend Cora Sue again.
    I wish we could be there to hug Floyd and Jana Sue.
    Our love to you.

  5. We were so sorry to hear of the lose of our dear dear friend. Cora Sue will always have a warm spot in our hearts and loads of great memories. K
