Sue and her family have been life long friends of my family. She and my mom were best of friends. I remember Gary and I coming to her and telling her we were dating and she said " It's about time. He has always loved you" She has endured more than most and is one of the strongest people I know. I will miss her beyond words. Rest in peace sweet lady.
