My deepest condolence to the Spence family. I didn't know Susan personally but through her sister Carol I've heard many sweet stories of Susan and how she loved her animals. I know she will be missed my many. May she Rest In Peace.

Sue loved the Red Sox and Ken Harrelson in particular. We took the Dedham line bus into Boston and made our way to Fenway Park. We had a glorious afternoon in the bleachers cheering on our boys of summer.
I also remember dancing to The Doors and working at Woolworths with Mr. Pace.
