    She was Steven’s grandma but I always called her Grandma Sue! What a precious, loving, thoughtful, caring and strong Christian lady she was!!
    We are deeply sorry for your loss but hope you receive comfort in knowing that heaven has gained a very “special “ angel 👼🏻.
    Praying that her family will forever treasure the “footprints” she has left on all of our hearts. ❤️❤️
