Sue was a "Joy" to all that knew her. I loved her smile, her talents, and her joy! I have a snowman table runner she made for me and I LOVE it, as I did her... Hugs to Julie, Jodi, Ron, and Scott, as well as sister, Nancy.... GRIEF: Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give, but cannot. All the unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go... Linda & Harold Baldock
