I’ve known Sue most of my life. She was as beautiful inside as she was outside. I know she will be sorely missed by all who loved her. I just learned of her passing today as I was on vacation. So very sorry for the loss of your precious person.

Sue, I will miss our phone calls and your encouraging words. You are so graceful and brave . Your words of encouragement meant so much to me when my first born daughter died in 2015. You were so brave in handling your own losses. I will miss our long phone calls and visits as we may so many years ago when you were pregnant with Jason. I am praying peace and comfort for your family who you loved so much.
