I'm grateful for the opportunity to have known, appreciated and loved Sue for at least the past ten years. She was an extraordinary individual. When I was first getting to know Sue I learned from Karen that Sue enjoyed being the center of attention. I learned that first-hand when the three of us were at dinner at Siena. Having finished, we were preparing to leave. However, Madam Sue deemed it important to converse with the folks t our next table, And the folks two tables down. And at the hostess as we were departing. Had she chosen acting rather than nursing I can imagine her at the Academy Awards talking up a storm with one of the TV greeters along the red carpet.

I also had the privilege of playing chauffeur and transporting her to Karen's for numerous holiday festivities. The Christmas drive was always particularly special because I got to witness Sue's almost child-like enchantment with all the Christmas displays and lights along the way.

She loved her family, took particular delight in her grandsons and great grandchildren and was tremendously proud of her daughter. I know that from our driving conversations.

Rest in peace Sue.

Dan and I are deeply saddened by the passing of your Mom. Sue will be missed dearly as you know she thought of Dan and I as her sons and we thought of her as a mom. I hope she is having a nice big cocktail with your dad in heaven. God bless you and your family.

My deepest condolences to Jeff, Karen and family. May my beautiful Aunt Sue rest in peace and be reunited with my Dad and the rest of the family gone before her. The best memories I have of Aunt Sue were from childhood visits to see her and Uncle Dick. She would play the piano and sing for me. She was so much fun! I'm proud to have been named after her and her sister Donna.
