Johnny, Joy and Troy--Even though I live in the Little Rock area, I frequently check the obituaries from McKinney. When I saw Sue's picture, I was just stunned. When we moved into that house next door to you on Redbud, your family was living there. That goes all the way back to the fall of 1967. I just can't imagine Sue not being there. Rest assured that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Gay (Pratt) Ahne Gayle Pratt Ahne, May 20, 2019 So many good memories with this precious lady. My heart aches for the Lindsey and Nixon families. Rest In Peace my friend.
