Sue was a strong and loving women, who will live on in our hearts. When her daughter, Brenda, married my son, Rusty, I not only gained a daughter; I gained a sister and brother. Sue was a mother to by three sons and a grandmother to my granddaughter. We came together as a family and shared our holidays, birthdays, and several barbecues together as a family. Sue will be missed, but she will never be forgotten. I love you Brenda, you and Rusty will be in my prayers . Thank you Brenda for bringing this amazing women into my life and blending our families together.

I love Aunt Sue very much. She has been there for me my whole life. I called her family and she was like my grandma. I miss her so much but I know she would want me to be strong and happy so that's what I will do. The best memories of her are the holidays. We spent almost every Christmas together and it is always my favorite. She was so happy. She even got me a fishing pole! She gave me my dog, Ginger, and loved her as much as I do. I will cherish my memories and things she gave me forever. I love and miss her so much.

Aunt Sue was one of my favorite people. She was funny, quick to sass, and honest to a fault(in my case painfully so sometimes). She treated my daughter as her grandchild and me like another daughter. I am so glad that when I married into the Picard family she came as a package deal! She will be missed by us so much and we love her more than words could express. I'm sharing my favorite picture of her and Brenda because it always makes smile.
