Sue always treated me as a son of sorts....

Sue trusted me to care for her precious green house when they traveled. She fostered my love of plants and she enjoyed sharing clippings of her plants as I started developing my own plant menagerie.

She will be missed by all who knew and loved her

I have so many great memories of my grandmother. And so many great things she said to me that I remember and reflect upon in my everyday life. She was one of my favorite people and I always knew I was loved when she was around. You are my sunshine. You sprinkled the planet with your kindness and wisdom. May your words and memories continue to influence the world in your absence.
