So many fond memories of Sue ,and the dearest one was when my daddy aka-JIM BITTLE :) was in the hospital she asked me if dad had given his life to Jesus and I was ashamed to admit that I really wasn't sure. That very day She contacted Pastor David Doyle and he came to dad's room and led him in the sinners prayer and baptized him that day. Daddy accepted Christ on the hospital bed and lived, but maybe a week after that and he went to see the Lord.. Like the Pastor Mark said today,, She wanted and expected Results and I was never happier for her love of her Lord and fellow man. I am so proud to be in her circle of friends. A better Godly woman you cannot find. I Loved this special lady .

We pause to remember a dear long time friend who spent her life making the lives of others run smoother.
Sue and I first met as teenagers in August 1953 when we entered nursing school at Arkansas Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. All friendships have their own personality and this was especially true of nursing school classmates. For three years we lived together, studied together, laughed together, and cried together. For whatever reasons our class became especially close and have carried and cherished that bond for 65 years.
To know of her going is especially painful for those of us who are left behind. We will never forget her smile and her precious friendship.
Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold. Thank you our dear Sue for being a special golden friend.
