I would like to thank Susan for all of her
support and kindness. When I first started working in a specialized program Susan was there to help me understand that all kids are created equally and not to be afraid to help them. We will miss you.

Sincerely
Lisa Gay

My dear cousin Susan and I shared many wonderful conversations. We both cared about family and carried a mutual interest in the Red Sox.
I miss her very much and pray she has reached the rest and reward she so richly deserves.
I know that she has positively impacted many lives as a great special education teacher for so many years.

Susan and I shared a birthday, September 16th. We always exchanged cards and gifts. One year we all celebrated at Brava in the MFA. We had a lovely time. Susan was a kind and loving person with a great laugh. I was so lucky to have known her.
