From (and placed here on behalf of) Sharon Burke:
Sue was my beloved godmother and cousin, and a much loved presence throughout my life. She had a deep love for her family and friends, and was especially proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She had a long and varied life, and her warmth, resilience and intellect always shone through. We have always kept in touch, and I treasured her lovely letters and updates on the family and her life. Our shared interest in family history brought us even closer over recent years and I am so grateful that we spoke on the phone not long before her sudden passing.
Sue met any challenges with good humour and an abiding faith.
Sue and my mother Naomi Aird, her first cousin, now deceased, were like sisters, and shared many happy times, travelling together on a number of occasions. I feel privileged to have known Sue and very much feel her loss, however I am blessed with wonderful memories and photos of her over the years. Rest in peace dearest Sue and thank you for being you and for all you have been in my life.
Beautiful service and very fitting tributes to a lovely Sue. I met Sue or Mark’s mum several ti mes and each time I was treted like I was a a member of family. Love you Sue
What a moving, heartfelt tribute to a truly amazing woman, beautiful in every way, who set an example for all of us. Sending deepest sympathies to all who loved her.
Thinking of all the family today. I have many happy memories of visiting your house as a child. Your mum my aunty Sue was always so kind and welcoming and had such a warm heart. . I remember spending fun time in your large garden. The tributes were so true of who she was. Much love in this very hard time. Tammy and family.
Thank you for providing access to the service for Sue today, I am sorry that I could not be there with you in person. It was so heartfelt and warm. It was a beautiful tribute to the strength, kindness and love that was Sue, and honoured her faith and life so well. The photos of her childhood and younger years were so interesting, and those with her own family in more recent times showed the love that surrounded her.
My love and condolences to you all xx
We were blessed to be part of the service.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Craig, Molly and Maz
What a privilege to share in this remembrance and thanksgiving for your Mum, Lee. The Lord clearly touched many people’s hearts and lives through her faith and her love for others. May He draw near to each one of family and friends who feel the great loss of her in the days ahead. With love and prayers. X
I think Mutti would have been contented with her service and will now be able to rest in peace, thankful for the heartfelt tributes and the love that has brought us together. It is with grace that I was able to share in this journey of a remarkable, but unassuming woman and her equally remarkable and beautiful family.
Thank you for the privilege of witnessing your family s tributes to your mother , Lee. Certainly she was a very special person . Standing with you at this time- much love to you and your family.
What a privilege and a blessing it has been to listen to such encouraging testimonies about the life of this lovely lady and her unwavering faith. Praise God for her life and how He has touched so many through it – including myself who have never met her. Thankyou to Lee for inviting me to join in these precious moments of remembrance and thanksgiving for her mum. With love and prayers to all the family, Rachel xxx.
What a gift to have been blessed with the attentive care and love of Sue and to be able to participate in the witness of her trust and love in God who brings life out of death and loves each person as they are.
My heart, and tears, and thanksgiving join yours in sorrow and celebration. +Halleluiah Indeed.
Thanks be to God.
With love and blessing from across the seas! Mali
It was a privilege to join you at the service and to see you all. It was a fine service and each one of you spoke so beautifully. Sue would have been so proud of your lovely sentiments, capturing her being so well. I loved the slide show of her life too. The photos brought back so many happy times, memories to treasure all the more now. Sue remains in our hearts and our lives. Doug and I send each of the family our love and big hugs.
The tributes to Sue were beautiful, and just as she was. We loved her. Thank you for streaming the service. We feel grateful to be able to be part of it.
Thinking of you all on the passing of a beautiful person. Love from the Wards.
