  1. Sue, Marcy and family,

    I remember how gracious your mother was when I used to stop by your house when in Pueblo or leaving by car-pool with Sue to Scottsbluff in our teaching days there.

    Though we’ve lost touch, I think of you, Sue, every year when I hang your china-painted Santa and gingerbread house on my tree.

    My condolences.
    Debra Traylor,
    Phoenix
