I was so sorry to hear about Sue. She always loved her family and spending as much time with everyone including Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, and Nephews. Sue always had a special fondness for her Uncle Don and enjoyed all our family reunions and picnics. I will miss her smiling and cheerful hello whenever we were together. Please know that my thoughts are with all of our family at this time and hoping you can find some solace in knowing Sue is in Heaven and at peace.

So sorry for your loss for Sue's siblings. I was grateful to be able to talk to her at Syracuse Hospital. We prayed together and now we will be meeting in heaven someday. God bless her. <3
