To the family of Miss Sue, I send my sincere sympathy. I was shocked to hear of her passing. She was such a sweet lady and she loved her family. That was evident in the way she spoke of you. I only met her when she became my mother’s “roommate” at Cornerstone Nursing Home. We loved her immediately! She was always looking out for Mother and keeping us posted on how she was. Since Mother had dementia and didn’t communicate well, Miss Sue could tell us things she could not. I never expected she would be gone only two months after Mother’s death. My prayers are with you at this sad time.
