We do not have many special friends, but Paris and Sue were special friends. We cannot count the hundreds of cards we received in our life time from Sue. Our prayers are with all of you. Love Stan and Gretchen Hendrickson

Sorry for your loss.
Always enjoyed your Mom when she came to my salon years ago. Saw she and your Dad out eating over years and a pleasant visit and lots of laughs.
Know you have many great memories.
