I am humbled and honored to have helped you through this journey with your mom. Peace to you and your family!
It was wonderful learning about your mother's story. Thank you for sharing with our AgeWise class the powerful work you do.
I cannot imagine how difficult it was for Jimmy to write his mom's obit. It told me so many things I did not know about Sue. We were cousins, but apart for so many years while she was nourishing her family. Sue and Jim raised 3 wonderful children. Sue was what every mother should be. Her family was her life. It shows in Jim and all of the children. Sue was a gracious lady, like Jim said, she could have been a queen. I am so glad that we became close in the last few years. I will really miss her e-mails and talks on the phone. I wish we had lived closer so we could have visited more. I think that maybe her oak tree will flourish now. I know heaven is a more beautiful place with her beautiful smiles. May God bless each of you.
Beautiful story about your mother Jim III. My sympathies to you and your family on your loss.

A very beautiful example of how we should all strive to live our lives. What a beautiful, and loving person. I was honored to meet Sue on two very special occasions---her son Jim's book signing events for OBIT and FINAL SALUTE. It was evident what a special Mother Sue was by her sincere joy and happiness for her son!
Jim wrote such a precious piece about this special lady. She is truely a beautiful person. Thank you, Jim, for sharing your Mother with all of us.
Our sincere sympathies go out to you and your family. From Colorado, The Wickham Family (LTC Wick aka Barbara, John Shane and Blake)
A wonderful person who lit up a room when she walked in. I am blessed to have known Cassie's mom! She was an amazing, loving grandmother.

Thinking about you and your family, Cassie.
Just as another guest wrote on this page, I never had the honor of meeting Sue but I was so touched by the loving write-up about her life and how adored she was by her family. When I saw the photos on this site, it only added more poignancy to her passing. She looks like a woman who deeply enjoyed her life and her family and they loved her in return. My condolences to your family.
Our Love and Prayers are with your Beautiful Family
The beautiful obituary is written so eloquently that it is a true reflection of Sue's literary legacy! What a beautiful, loving person she was. Heaven is shining a bit brighter after her passing. May her memory shine brightly in the darkness of your loss. I know Ada Fay and Paul will greatly miss her. Our deepest sympathy, Deen and Holly Wood
Our prayers are with your precious family...never got to meet you but understand their endearment to you, was a sideline hospice nurse for you, & am a fellow CASA advocate with you! Will meet you in heaven! Love Deb Ford
What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful woman and mother. Our thoughts are with you all.
Our love to the family. An honor to be her cousin!
I've never met her, but this has to be the absolute best obituary I've ever read. What a well-loved woman she was! I wish I could have had the chance to know her!
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.
What a beautiful obituary. I know it is very difficult to lose your mom. I did not know Mrs. Sue Sheeler, but when I read about how wonderful a person she was I cried for my own mom. God bless your family.
What a Beautiful Lady and a wonderful Life RIP
Sue was, as you described, a real lady, but further, she was a magnificent human being who lived as we are all charged to live, a life of grace as she threaded her way through it, always making it better for others. I am so sorry not to be in the US celebrating her life with all of you at her services.
Some of us learn to love well, but every inch of Sue was love--it oozed from her and spread over all of us who called her friend. God blessed you, Jim for having the foresight to choose such a lovely human being to share your life with; thank you for bringing her into the orbit of our lives.

A woman whose legacy will live on forever in the lives of her family and those she touched, both two-legged and four-legged. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Sheeler.
I know about hard obituaries to write, having written my moms. But we both succeeded in telling the world about two wonderful women. I've included yours in my blog, http://ninalentinislifewithoutend.blogspot.com/. She's among good company.
Jim III, So sorry for your families loss. Sounds like your mother was a very special lady,and a very pretty one. God is with you all.
My heart goes out to you and Annick and your family. What an amazing and involved woman your mother was! So many interests and activities (and animals!), I'm sure she made a stellar mom and "Grandmom." Reading this makes me appreciate even more my own mom and her accomplishments. I'll be giving her an extra long and secure hug when I see her in a couple of weeks.
Your mom's relatively sudden passing was a shock I'm sure and I hope you were able to say your goodbyes. But you know better than most how fleeting life can be and how important is every moment we get to spend with those we love. It sounds like your mom knew this well and infused those times with large doses of quality time and love. You can't ask for much more.
I hope, apart from the heartbreaking circumstances, this finds you and your family well and happy. I hope to see you sometime soon, if you're ever back in CO.
With deepest condolences,
So sorry, Mr. Sheeler, for you loss. Praying for you and your family.
Debbie from Kansas
Sue was a truly genuine person. Always very loving to her "Daddy", proud of her children and Jim and you always knew what was on her mind. She will be fondly remembered. Our deepest sympathies.
Sue was such a warm and gracious, fine lady I will always respect. Pat and I were blessed to have known her, a real example of beautiful, Southern hospitality. I am heartbroken for the family, they are in my prayers.
