  2. Oh so sorry, she worked at the plant for a while, I got to work with her some and it was a pleasure, I know she will be missed by her family may God be with you at this time.

  3. Sue was such a good-neighbor and especially to Tom; sharing flower tips, grandchildren stories, praising their Lord or whatever across the backyard fences. I was saddened when Jelene Ballard told me she wasn’t doing well several years ago when her group came to Beaver, Oklahoma to share their talents at our Elderfair when I still lived there. Now we are all in Stillwater, Oklahoma close and enjoying those grown grandchildren and their spouses plus a great grandson and granddaughter and I am living in a senior-retirement apartment complex, loving it as Beth and Kelly are here in town also. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathway our Lord has for each as there are no pathways, an individual pathway for each one. Melvin, my only advice after 17 1/2 years of widowhood is cling to God’s unfailing and unchanging hand. He will not lead you wrong. God bless each of you.
