  1. Sue and Family, I am saddened by this great loss. She really not lost she just changed her address to Heaven.
    She was A grand lady.
    She was and is very elegant and A Class Act. She never complained and she was always gracious. Heaven gained A amazing Lady. I know Glen and Lovett’s met her as she entered Heavens Gates.
    All my love and adoration. Linda Caldwell
