    So sad to hear of Sue’s passing. She was a good friend to me while we were in school together. I will miss seeing her & her Mom at the casino. Love you Sue. You will be greatly missed.

    Wanted to tell you that I have known Sue for a few years now
    through Curves and thought she was such a hard working, good hearted person. May you find comfort in the many special memories
    of Sue that you hold in your hearts. So sorry for your loss.

    With my sympathy,

    So very sorry to learn of Sue’s passing so young. I met Sue many years ago at TOPS and she was always so friendly and then I would see her at Wendy’s and she remembered me and always had a smile. My sympathy to her family~prayers are with you.
