Sue and family, I think I only met Jug once or twice, but know how devoted to you all he was. Every time I called Sue, and usually she was out running around!, we kidded each other about Sue being out and about. I could always hear the affection in his voice. Sue always talked about how caring he was with the kids and the grandkids. He was especially taken with the Eileen, the newest member! Please know how sorry I am to hear of his passing. Love you, Sue. Barb
