Johnny, my heart is breaking for you and the boys. Susie was the light of your world. She brought happiness to everyone who ever met her. You two had 47 beautiful years filled with memories that will always be with you. And the memories will keep her alive forever. I pray for you and the boys. I pray for Patty, Jimbob, Marie, Eve, and Joe Ann. I know there is an emptiness inside all of you that feels like it will never go away, but those memories will fill them. I Love you all. Big Sue
