Message from Sue:


Dear friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the out pouring of support, care and love. I have to be honest the first few days I really didn't want to live thru this nightmare. I do not want this life without my babies. They are everything to me. Its still surreal, numb, shocking and overwhelmingly sad. It comes in waves of all of the above. So many ask and are wanting to help. Thank you. I know now that if I give up, then I have given up on Ben, Maddy and Sam and it is my job as their mother to keep their light, their dreams alive. I will need help rebuilding. Right now I am just taking one day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Your donations will help get me to a strong place where I can continue to keep my children's light on. What that is right now, I am not sure yet but I believe time will tell. I will be planning their memorial soon and will keep you posted on details. I very much treasure how so many of you have come together to honor their precious lives, it means more to me than words can describe. Ben, Maddy and Sam would be/are proud. Thank you.

In the past week since we started the GoFundMe campaign for Sue Tower a number of people have asked who I am and why I started it.

I'm Sandra Wing, the General Manager of the NW Sports Hub in Centralia WA. I am not only a friend and associate of Sue Tower, but was also honored to have Ben, Maddy & Sam in the facility on a regular basis and was able to get to know them (Sam was always playing baseball outside my office when he was here, I gave him a pickleball to hit instead of a baseball because he was forever hitting the baseball against the balcony above my office - pickleballs are softer, make less noise).

As a mother and a friend, I mourn the loss of these children and my heart breaks for Sue and their family.

Although there is nothing that will ever make it better, this fund was put into place to help make it easier.

I'd like to personally thank everyone that has reached out with words, prayers, cards and donations.

Thank you for your support.
Sandy

I am so so sorry for everything that you lost. My boyfriend, cat and I just experienced a fire on Tuesday morning and we lost most of our apartment. I won't even try to pretend that it compares. You have my heart and I hope that you are finding a way to heal. My prayers are with you and your little angels.

I can't begin to imagine the anguish, pain and trauma a mother must feel at the loss of her beloved children.... Nothing compares. I have been praying and meditating for you all. I knew all of your precious angels and witnessed your love for them. I wrote a post on my Blog about dealing with loss and that "love and grief come as a package deal." I had to write this as I lost too much sleep over such a situation. You can read it on www.singleparentstyle.com if you get a chance. But dearest Sue, bless your beautiful soul as you decode this new journey. Your angels are with you everyday sending you comfort on your most difficult days, they send smiles when sadness invades, rainbows to lift the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips and faith so you can awaken to new found courage hope and love. Thinking of you day and night, Janie
