My condolences to Larry and family. I knew Sue Etta through my friendship with her sister-in-law Penny. We three often met for lunch in Johnson City while I was visiting family in the area. Sue Etta was indeed a special aunt to her nieces, Hannah, Claudia and Andrea. She will be missed.

I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Sue Etta's passing. She was a friend to all and a bright spot in everyone's day. She had an amazing sense of humor and could make people laugh with just a sentence or two... My thoughts and prayers are with Larry and the rest of Sue's family as they face this time of sorrow. Rest in paradise my friend.
