My dear and loving friend Sue,

I am extremely saddened by the news of your passing. Time passes so fast in our lives. We don’t realize how fast time goes until you stop and look at the actual life. I wish I could see you again. I remember the day we all met at the little market bakery. It seems like a few years ago. You became a great friend and mentor to me. It was always a joy to hang out with you with whatever we did. You always made people smile and laugh. You always offered a kind word. I have lost a true loving friend and have a void that won’t ever be filled. The sadness and grief we feel shows how great of a loving person you are and how you touched our lives. So many great memories to share. You were a great friend and mom so many times to me. I miss you and will never forget the angel you were and definitely the Angel you are now. My condolences to Joe and the family. Prayers for comfort and peace as you grieve. Sue..I miss and love you. Keep watch over us as we will join you someday.  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith... God Bless!

My deepest condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother. I only met her a few times. Each time I spent with her she was an absolute joy! Mrs. Kalmer could make you feel so comfortable and part of the family. I truly wish I could have spent more time with her and the wonderful personality she had. I send prayers to the loved ones and friends that lost her. But smiles for the wonderful memories she created with and for family!
