    Such sad news and our thoughts are with Ted and family at this very sad time. We were so privileged to have met Sandy Sue and Ted during their visits to Scotland and get to know them as part of our family.
    We will remember her as a kind, special and lovely lady. Rest in peace. Xxx

  • Ted and family, I’m so sorry to hear about Sue. You guys have truly been blessed having been married for 47 years. What a wonderful accomplishment. As hard as it is to say goodbye, we know she has gone to be with our Lord and Savior where we will meet again when our time comes. God’s Blessings to you all.

  • Rest in peace shoulder sister.

    Dear Ted and family,
    We were so saddened to hear that Sandy had passed away. Thank you, Ted, for the call. We had just discussed calling to check on her.
    Sandy was such a good woman; good wife, mother, grandmother, cousin and friend. We loved her and had stayed in contact through the years. We pray that you will be able to remember all the sweet and good times spent with her, and any hard and difficult times will just fade from memory. And we know there are more good times to cherish.
    May God Bless and comfort you now and in the times ahead.
    With our love, thoughts and prayers,
    “Families are Forever”
    Don & Mary Timberman

    Our deepest sympathies goes out to Ted and the family on the loss of my beautiful girlfriend, Sue!
    She was always with a smile on her face and ready for fun. I will miss our, as we called them over the phone, laugh lunches. We met in San Diego and after she moved to Arizona we stayed in touch. Lucky for us Sue was in our lives!
    God bless her.

  • My dearest friend in the world since sixth grade. I can’t even begin to list everything that I shall miss. That being said, I am so thankful that she has traded in her sick body for one that is free from sickness and pain. She was right with our Lord and that alone gives us peace. My deepest condolences and love to all. May God bless and keep you and may your hearts be full of wonderful, loving memories past. ♥️♥️

  • I’m so very sorry to hear this news. I new Sue for a brief time at St. Bartholomew but we connected immediately. She gave a testimony once that was very moving to me and my husband, Rev. Chris Harris. She will be greatly missed, our love goes out to her family and friends.

  • God has given each one of us a little “chunk of eternity” called time. These golden moments of opportunity are doled out to us for our benefit and for God’s glory. If we use them wisely, they are woven by God’s omnipotent hand into the fabric of eternity – Billy Graham
    Four years ago I benefited golden moments of time spent with Sue and our mutual best friend, Terry Boland, celebrating Terry’s 70th Birthday in Atlanta. And I’m still Praising God for that blessing of time sharing friendship, love, life and endless laughter with Sue. My sincerest prayers are for every memory that brings you comfort, it is a gift of God’s Grace and Love for you.

  • Four years ago I contacted Suzie to join in a surprise 70th Birthday gathering for our mutual dearest friend, Terry Boland, in Atlanta. It was one of those rare golden moments in time coming together in friendship, love and endless laughter. I feel blessed to have had those golden moments with Suzie to reflect on always remember.
    Praying every memory brings you comfort and joy as it is a gift of God’s Grace and Love for you all.
