I am sorry to hear this. I went to school with Sue and was one year behind her. We called her Sue Baby. Sue rode to college with me every day. She was a friend

Susan, you know you have been one of my bestest friends since I can remember. From the day we started here at the hotel until long after. I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will all miss her very much! I will never forget everything she did for me as well. If there is anything I can do please let me know. Love you all!
