    Sue,

    I haven’t seen you in a very long time since my mom, Marion Reahm, passed away. I’m so sorry to read about your mom’s passing. It is hard to lose our mom. Every day I still think of her. Your mom and my mom had such a beautiful relationship. I will never forget all the stories mom would tell of spending special time with her. Please know that I will be praying for you that God will comfort you in the days ahead. Love and prayers, Charlene Reahm Pranger

    Thank you Sue and Scott for introducing me to your Mom. We became friends easily and quickly as she was a very warm and appreciative client. We shared many laughs and tears over the eight and 1/2 years I worked with her. We learned things together but mostly I learned much from her. I am so happy to have known her! She’s in her heavenly home with Jesus now and at peace. What a blessing to your family she was!
