Sue hadn't been feeling well and tests revealed an especially aggressive metastatic cancer. After a short time in the hospital she came home; days later she passed away. It was very sudden and shocking and it's still hard to believe that she's no longer here. Sue spent time with her friends and all of our close family in her last days, and died with my father at her side. I miss her in ways I can't express.
Less than two weeks later, Kathie fell at home and broke several ribs. She was hospitalized briefly and though we hoped for the best, she was unable to recover from her injuries. She died surrounded by family. Two of her grandsons who spoke at her service remembered her for her quiet, steady presence and gentle kindness. We remember her for those things and so much more.
I could write pages and pages about Sue and Kathie, story after story about them both, but I wouldn't know where to stop. Instead I will leave you with just the news that they are gone and a photo of each from our visits in the Caribbean with them. May their memories be a blessing to us all...
