  1. My sympathy to the entire family....Sue was truly a wonderful person with such fine qualities . She will be sadly missed by all that were fortunate enough to have made her acquaintance.

  2. God bless you, Susie. You will always have a place in my heart. My prayers go out to your daughter, Kelly, and your family.

  3. To "Sue Sue's" daughter Kelly: Your mother meant the world to me so I called her mom since 1971 when you arrived next door and became my best friend forever. I simply became one of the clan with my own nickname, my own seat on your swing and my own stocking at Christmas. Without you and your family, my life would never have been complete. Sue-Sue, I miss you more and more every day. Keep an eye on us all. We still need you. With love, Allie-Son
