Sue Burns was an amazing person. Since I could never really capture the true beauty that she was, I am going to list some adjectives that were personified in her person: gracious, selfless, giving, positive, down-to earth, and fun. She, was a "bag lady" at the St. Francis Center for five years and though packing groceries for families in need of food isn't glamorous, it was necessary. Sue was faithful and fun in her service. She is already TERRIBLY missed.
I pray in gratitude for her life and friendship and for her family.

What a great lady!!! We had the pleasure of starting many a day with Sue Burns at The Espresso Lane. She was always positive, sweet and happy to share a story or two. She will be missed, but she has left many with memories of sparkling eyes and infectious laughter.
