Al, Sonya, Brad and Kara,<br /><br />We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Sue. We remember our years together, as across the street neighbors, in Chimney Springs, many years ago. We hold fond memories of all of you and we pray for God's peace to be with you and for His presence to be felt during your time of sorrow.<br /><br />&quot;Grieving never ends, but it changes.<br /> It's a passage not a place to stay.<br /> It's not a sign weakness, nor a lack of faith.<br /> It is the price of LOVE.&quot;<br /><br />With love and our continued prayers.<br />Swint and Mary Jane Burkhalter
