Sue Minick was my very good and longtime friend. She was beautiful, endearing and had a great sense of humor. She loved her family with a deep and everlasting love and was a good daughter, mother , Grandmother and Great Grandmother. She liked to dress up and looked great in anything she chose to wear. We spent a lot of hours together discussing life's issues, but, thankfully we never made any life changing

decisions. I will miss my friend, Rest in Peace Sue.
