I just wanted to let you all know that I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Sue. She was such a wonderful artist, and I can remember several fun times that you all visited my family when I was growing up. I know my parents were very close to her and would like to attend the service. However, they are too elderly to make the trip. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending my sympathy , love and prayers. Sorry I could not be there with you. Sue will be greatly missed. She has been my best friend for many years. I have fond memories of our trip to Canada, our many trips to Hilton Head, our visits, our shopping trips and our daily phone calls. I rejoice knowing that she has gone to her final reward!l
