When I think of Sue, I think of Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies. She always had some in the fridge and was always willing to make them for us. She wanted to do things for other people all the time and that is another very fond memory I have of her is her helpful spirit. From volunteering in Cambodia to making us feel at home with a chocolate chip cookie, she was a very caring and helpful soul. She is greatly missed and fondly remembered!
I loved when Aunt Sue would come over for dinner and make us all laugh. She always brought some baked goods 🙂 For years, she would bake my dad a German Chocolate cake for his birthday – the best homemade German Chocolate cake I’ve ever had. I always looked forward to her coming over. Miss her so much.
I have many fond memories of my sister Sue. One that is vivid is when Sue was a teenager & she waitressed at Mama Mia’s Italian restaurant on Pearl St in La Jolla. Our family would go to Mama Mia’s often to hang out with Sue & have dinner. Sue convinced the owners to let me be a dish washer in the kitchen. I was 8-10 yrs old & I always loved hanging at Mama Mia’s with Sue, Amy, Mary & Morrie & doing the dishes! I also remember Sue’s first new car…a blue Datsun B210! Miss you Sue!
Even tho I only had a few visits with Sue, I felt a closeness and was impressed with her work with the elephants and with the rocks she painted.These lyrics from the song Ghost resonate with me: “I know you crossed a bridge that I can’t follow
Since the love that you left is all that I get I want you to know
That if I can’t be close to you
I’ll settle for the ghost of you” And little Molly is such a joy and fits in with our family so well. Glad she came home with me!
Sue was my older and beautiful sister and I have many feelings and thoughts about her. Many difficult to discuss. I always loved when Sue would come visit me in NYC with and without the kids. We had so much fun hanging out, going to restaurants, seeing shows and walking around the city. Those were fun and meaningful times. I pray she is at peace. Amy
My Cuz was one of a kind. We loved to get together, call and text each other to cut up and laugh. He was always there when I needed him. We shared laughs, good times and even the Bible together every time we talked or met. People aways said we looked like twins Cuz. So don’t be telling everyone in Heaven you are the best looking one! (lol) Miss you every day!
Charlie was one of the rare gentlemen I had the pleasure of knowing. I am thankful to have called him my friend. He became the husband of my best friend and made her happy which made me happy. He knew that when he meet her she and I was a package deal which would make him grin. If I need anything the both of them was always there. I don’t know why God needed him so soon but I know one day us three will continue our friendship. May you rest in peace until we meet again. Miss you my friend!
I miss you is such a simple phrase. I miss everything about you – your smile, the twinkle in your eyes when we were playing, your laugh, the way you held me…everything. My heart aches for you. I know we’ll be together again, and then it’ll be for all eternity. I love now and always my love.
I thought I would share part of a paper I wrote in my English class, the prompt was “How do we define ourselves”
One of my friends since elementary school had passed away in an unfortunate manner. She had a heart of gold and would accept anybody no matter their differences. The way she thought and processed things truly resonated within me and constructed the way I thought among my peers. She not only left a legacy of true cordiality, but she left a legacy that continues today through me today.
I love you Jilly, I miss you more than you would ever know. I think about you constantly and I truly am so grateful that i had such a bright light in my life all these years. You changed Elliott’s life for the better and you became like a little sister to me. I’ll never be able to thank you for everything you did for me and Elliott but just know you are SO loved. I love you for life.
Thought you would like this one too. Beautiful butterfly for a beautiful soul.
We love you! We think about you all the time.
Uncle Pat, Aunt Jeanine, Jenna, Paul and Jane
