Dorne & Family:
There are no words to express the sorrow we feel in Susan’s passing.
Her smile & wit will always be remembered but most of all the loving
home she made for her family. I was always amassed by how calmly
she would always be & taking care of business, no matter what.

We are so pleased that we got see her at Davis Emmons in Houghton Lake last summer. Dorne , your visits to Ed have really been a good
thing for him & he’ll always be there for you. Don’t let those visit

Love to all the family

Dorne and Family –
I am truly sorry to hear about your loss. Sue was delightful to be around when we were involved in scouts together. Always the calm one in the group. I feel blessed to have known her. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I so am saddened by the loss of a beautiful person. I feel fortunate to have worked with and known such a kind and caring woman. She was always so cool and calm about everything (something I had always admired), she cared about her family and was happy in her life. Sue will be greatly missed and I am sorry for the pain and heartache so many must be endearing. God bless to all.

To Susan’s Family – I offer my deepest sympathy. I remember Sue as a little girl. She was my childhood girlfriend. We use to play house on her parents porch. She introduced me to goulash sandwiches. I was shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. I will forever remember her fondly. God’s blessings on her whole family.
