    Sue was the true heartbeat in the church in Archie. She always offered a hug and always had an upbeat attitude. Even though we are saddened to hear of her passing, her love for God has been a blessing to all of us, and she is now living the BEST LIFE now in Heaven. I know I will see her again. Love to the family.
