"Aunt Sue was the funniest, most gracious, and open minded person I have ever met. She accepted everyone for who they were, and made them feel like they were instantly part of the family. Her stories were epic in their hilarity, and when she was around her sisters (the other two "witches of Eastwick"), the laughter could be heard for miles.
My mother, Elizabeth, cherished her phone conversations with her sister. Even with her aphasia/Alzheimer's, my mom was still able to find a way to communicate (often without words) over the phone with the sister she idolized and loved. Losing her sister is a significant hurt, but my mother has some solace in knowing that she and Sue were able to say their face-to-face goodbyes to each other last year when Elizabeth made the trip "home" to visit.
Our love and condolences go to Phillip, Danny, Matthew, and all the wives and kids who knew Aunt Sue as "Ma" and "Grammy." May you find peace in knowing that she has joined Henry, her mother, her younger sister, and older brother in paradise...free from disease, pain, and affliction. May she rest in peace."
