We are so very sorry to hear this sad news. Sue was my mentor for working in the lunchroom at Pinecrest many years ago….she had unending patience with that school full of kids! We are holding her kids in our heart and we wish her family peace and strength during this tragic time.

I am so saddened by your loss and offer my deepest sympathies. Sue was my neighbor on Shelter for many years. In the small world it is, I now am a colleague of Sue’s father at MSU. I wish Jack and his family peace and God’s grace during this difficult time. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers, especially the kids, who I fondly remember as “little ones.”
