Sue was a wonderful person and a great friend to my mom, Sally. She spent a lot of time with my family over the years, from beach days in the summer, shopping trips, tee ball games and cross country races. We were very saddened to hear of her passing. Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.

To my friend Susan: I am going to miss you! We spent a lot of time together, just driving around for the sake of it. We took tons of pictures, saw lots of movies, and tried most restaurants all over Maine. We laughed a lot. I saw you mad only once, and thank goodness, it was not at me. You were a friend as well to my boyfriend, Dave, and the three of us were on the go. We took boat rides, ski lift rides, and climbed hills on foot. Precious memories! To Michael, Anne, and Elizabeth, and all of Susan's family, I want to express my sincere sorrow for your loss. Michael, your mom truly loved you. You did a wonderful job taking care of her and making sure she was safe and had all that she needed.
