    Sweet sweet friend, you will be missed. Such a precious lady. When I moved in next door to you and Mr. Brake, I do not know what I would have done without y’all. It was such a blessing. Loved you dearly.

    So sad. Fond memories of Aunt Sue down in the country. Memories of when her and Uncle Billy would come to the country, my brother and sister would be at Uncle Austin’s and they would take me for (a speedy ride, lol) and we would pick corn or whatever. RIP Aunt Sue. Your family is in my thoughts.

    Aunt Sue was my partner in crime whenever we were together. I will always remember our giggles together and private talks. We shared many laughs and tears mostly tears from laughing so hard. Stay on top of all the gossip in Heaven Aunt Sue so you can fill me in when I see you again. Love always Vicki Mercer

    Bill and I are fortunate to have been your neighbor. Mrs. Brake was one of the sweetest people I have met. When Bill and I 1st married you were there to lend advice and Billy would help Bill with tools or just lend a hand. No more pain nor suffering.

    Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

    Heaven gets another precious Angel. Mrs. Brake is once again with Billy and Helen. Wonderful memories of being neighbors for so many years. They are much more than neighbors and more like family. You are always in our prayers and thoughts. God bless each of you. Sue and Billy will never be forgotten.

    Our family sends condolences for your family loss.
    “True, death brings sorrow and tears, and it is hard to adjust to the absence of a loved one. But what comfort and strength we gain from the assurance that the Sovereign Lord Jehovah “will actually swallow up death forever, and . . . will certainly wipe the tears from all faces”! (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4) Can help you with questions about death and more.
