My Auntie Sue was the original Sittin Ugly Sistah! In fact, she not only coined the phrase, she lived it and oh, how I miss her every day.
Auntie Sue was the heart and soul of our family. She understood the importance of being together to love and laugh. She inspired us all to be better people and at the same time, not take ourselves too seriously.
She could be tough as nails when she had to be. At 4’11” and 100 pounds soaking wet, she was a force to be reckoned with and a heart full of compassion all at the same time.
She faced aging with grace and humor. She lived modestly yet gave generously. She had a kind word for everyone and lived each day with integrity and faith.
I hope you know how much I miss you, Auntie Sue. I’m pretty sure you’ve got things all organized in Heaven with weekly Skip Bo tournaments and shopping trips. I like to think you’re sittin ugly with me every morning, enjoying your quiet time and encouraging us all to seize the day!
Happy Birthday Auntie Sue!
