“‘Sue,’ what a blessing” she has been to our family, our churchand our community. She lived her testimony of faith everyday. Iexpect she will be missed at Jackson Oncology as well … as shewas better known as “The Hat Lady.” She made and decorated adifferent hat for every holiday or occasion to wear when she wouldgo for treatment to always brighten the spirits of others who werethere. This evolved into the “Hat Ministry” and allowed her tospeak in various churches and share her testimony of God’s grace.She has been an inspiration at home and abroad in her daily walk.Through it all, her faith never waivered. We will miss her greatlyas we continue to serve an unfailing God.
