Sue Stronk. Sue is my
mom’s sister’s husband’s sister. I don’t
get to see her as often as I would like and when we do, something good is
brewing with the family, usually centered around the dining room table.
Her laugh and warmth fills a room. The impressive home she’s created is a lovely
extension of her personality. Her adoration of golden retrievers, the warm sun
and her garden make me happy.
My earliest memories date back to when kids actually went
door to door selling things. My
merchandise ranged from candy bars, Christmas wrapping paper, canned food
drive, etc. Sue always hooked me up and
single handedly helped increase my sales by a large margin. Her recent penny donation gives me nostalgic
flash backs to yesteryear even though I’m not trying to make a sales quota or
compete with my classmates for the most raised this go around. This penny collection mission is far more
personal. Heartfelt thank you Aunt Sue.
