Richard, Alex, Olivia...
I was just made aware of Sue's passing today. I was saddened by the news, especially that I found out too late to attend her service.

Sue was a great lady, and a super dance mom friend throughout the dance years!! We had a lot of laughs over dance stuff...Showstopper 2008 especially comes to mind! And of course that crazy choo choo train trip to NYC...with the dancing daughters! That was a great time!!

May God be with you all during this time. I know she's in a great place!!

In Love and Friendship
Mel Hnatt

Mr. & Mrs. Kopas, Frank & Beth Ann,
I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss Sue very much. I thought about her all the time and didn't know she was going through this the last couple of yrs. She never told me the cancer had returned. I feel so bad that we hadn't gotten together like we had planned so many times. It just breaks my heart. Talking is never like seeing each other in person. She will always be watching over you from above and doing the best to take care of you and Alex, Olivia and Rich.

Rich, Olivia and Alex,
We are so sorry for your loss. Sue was a wonderful neighbor and friend when we lived in Waterford Green. I remember her laughter and fun personality as Olivia and our son, David, went through many elementary classes together at Apex Elementary. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
