I am deeply saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. Sue and I worked together in cytology and she always brightened my day. When she spoke to you, you really felt how much she valued your friendship. I will miss that the most about Sue. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am a former neighbor and babysat for Justin and Jessica when they were little. Sue had a friendly personality and I had many conversations with her. She will be very missed. Praying for strength and peace during this difficult time.
