To one of the greatest Aunt's anyone could have! I will never forget the sound of your voice and you saying "Beanie!", when mom and I would come see you, followed with a big hug that always came with it. I was also super proud of myself when I finally got taller than you. I was no longer the shortest in the family. Back to holding that title again, but it's ok cause WE shared it. I will miss you always and love you forever.
Your One and Only

Dear Joel, Matt & Emily,
My heart filled with sadness at this news. I was lucky to have Sue as my room mother seeing her love for all of you shine through her beautiful smile. As teacher liaison between the staff & PTA, I spent many hours with Sue witnessing her devotion to the Harris School Family. She never stopped working tirelessly to make everything better for all. She was a delight to spend time with always fun & full of life. We were always happy to have your family walk through the door to help with projects & fundraisers. All of you made Harris a better place. Hugs to all of you. Will be praying for & thinking of you now & in the difficult days to come.
Love, Barb Marras

To the entire Mellor family, I am shocked and so saddened by the passing of your dear wife and mother. Such a hard working, generous, kind lady. The world is a better place for her having been here. My deepest sympathies to you.
