Bennie (Sue) We worked side by side for many years at Ben Taub surgery clinic. You will always have a special place in my heart!
I can't believe you're gone. We never did lunch like we were supposed to. I miss you. I know you thought a lot of Nick also. I told him you went to be with Jesus and he was emotional, he thought a lot of you. You would spoil him with food and cokes when he volunteered that summer. He would ask about you occasionally .
You would tell the providers and residents " little girl get over here" I always would laugh. Keeping all of them in line. You were a wonderful person with a heart of gold. Thank you for the wisdom and advice you gave. I love you always!
