Bob, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have many fond memories of Sue from our Stratford House days. Sue could light up a room just by walking in.

I worked with Sue for over 25 years and considered her a good “work friend.” This is very sad news and my thoughts and prayers are with her family.

I'm sure that with Sue's nursing career she had a positive effect on many. We have a granddaughter and granddaughter-in-law in nursing and we are well aware of the good they do. We member Sue mostly from Department parties. She was always a joy to be around. Jolene remembered the T-shirts you wore in England that sort of put the English in their place. Sorry, I can't come up with the exact wording. You and your family are in our prayers.
