Susan and Eric, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember your mother well beginning when Eric was in our 3rd grade. She was always willing to help over both your school years. Obviously a caring parent and I know you will miss her greatly. My thoughts and prayers will be with you in these difficult days. May God give you peace and comfort as only He can.🙏💕

I am so sorry for your sudden loss. My heart goes out to you.
I met Sue when we were building on Monnett Rd. I was so excited to learn she had a daughter a little older than mine. We would see each other over the years at neighborhood gatherings. She was always kind to me.

Sending the whole Burgess family my deepest condolences. I spent many days and had many sleep overs with Susan as she was my best childhood friend. Sue was my second mom. She often corrected my grammar and never let me get away with any of my rebellious acts. But I loved her so much. RIP Mrs. Burgess and God speed. You will be missed.
