As a coworker at Saint Francis, and our Past Grand Royal Matron, Honored Lady Sue was a good friend, and a strong supporter of our struggle to end the scourge of diabetes. The last few times I visited her, even though she was dealing with serious and painful issues, her warm smile and determination never wavered. I will miss her, and will proudly lead our Amaranth tribute to her tomorrow. As we say in Amaranth, she will always remain, "Sweet In Our Memory".
