Sue , you were loved by many on earth but are loved more in your new home in heaven. Enjoy your new life by the grace of our lord. All here on earth know you are always going to watch us and smirk at things we do but we know your here to watch and guide us. Your children loved you to the moon and back as did your grandchildren. No words can I say that will ease their sorrowful pain now but with time they will remember all the great memories you all shared and thought them. God Bless you as Heaven makes a place for you. Love always and remembered forever, Bob & Karen

I wish to give my condolence to the Bonsignore Family for their great loss of Delores "Sue". Sue lived a gracious life full of love. She was loved by all who knew her and will be sorely missed. May you be reassured of the promise that God will bring back your loved ones to be "Enlightened with the light of the living" (Job 33:30) May this bring you comfort and peace to one day embrace your beloved Sue again.

Aunt Sue will be so missed, I know she has many treasures stored up in Heaven as she was a giver and caretaker for so many, I'll never forget her coming over to my grandmothers house to nurse her wounds during her cancer battle, and that was after a hard day at work. I remember when she first met Uncle Willie and I thought she was such a cool young Aunt with a boyfriend, you would call me the Campbell Soup Girl because I was chubby with a bowl haircut. I loved spending time with her when I was a child, I would often sleep over in the summer when she lived in Shirley to play with my baby cousins, and now as we lived so many miles apart I stayed connected on FB as we often times had our morning coffee together. I will miss you Aunt Sue and I will see you one day again. Praying for my cousins to have peace and comfort during this time of grief, I love you guys and am thinking of you all.
Love Alison

I never met Sue in person. Known her from Facebook for several years now. Will miss talking with her, but know she walking and talking with Jesus now. My heart goes out to her family. She will be missed.
