Blessed Sue Reeves will be missed by so many people, family, and friends. Their home was always open to young people for an hour or a night. You have to love children to teach as she did in Special Education for 30 years. I would say she loved people and was loved in return. Our love and prayers are with her dear family who are missing her so very much, as do all her friends. In Jesus Holy Name, from Russ and Alta Ulmer of Delaware, Ohio
