Heartfelt Thanks

Heartfelt Thanks

    As many of you know, January was a rough month for my family.  My brother underwent unexpected open heart surgery to repair a leaking valve.  He was born with a heart condition, and has had two surgeries to fix it in the past. But this third surgery was very unexpected.  That same day, my first rep, Sue Ross, passed away from a heart attack.  I wanted to share this letter that my brother wrote.  He writes for the Butler Collegian at Butler University, and he has a way with words: On Behalf of the Beery Family, Larry Cimino, Susan Chappell Ross, her families and friends: My name is Kyle Beery, Iʼm a 22-year-old from Saugatuck, Michigan . I am currently a junior at Butler University in Indianapolis, recently recovering from an open-heart surgery in January of this year. This most recent, and unexpected surgery was my third (and hopefully last). It was my second open heart surgery in three years to replace my pulmonary valve. My familyʼs dear friend Sue Ross died of a heart attack on January 16 , 2014, the very same day I had my open heart surgery – and it hit all of us who knew her pretty hard. Sue had her own company, Sue Ross Sales. She represented well over 200 lines of merchandise that you see in our local stores.

Let Faith be Bigger than your Fears

2014 did not start off very well for my family.  My brother, who was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, had to have emergency open heart surgery.  During his surgery, we found out that my mom’s close friend Sue, my rep for Polka Dot Mitten, had passed away from a massive heart attack. Heart conditions are near and dear to my family.  Mike and I have decided to donate a portion of our sales each month to the American Heart Association in Sue’s honor.  She really, truly made our company grow more than I ever could have imagined. Because of her hard work, our company is continuing to grow even though she is gone. My mom is also working hard on organizing a “Go Red for Women” walk in honor of Sue.  It will go from Saugatuck to Douglas.  She doesn’t have a date set, but it will be sometime once the snow is gone and the weather is warmer.  When we have all the details for that, I will be sure to do a post about it!  ...
