Sue was one of my best friends in High School........I am so sorry to learn of her passing!  She was real, and kind, and I don't remember her ever getting mad at anyone.  My prayers to her family!

Sue was a kind and nice person in high school, and I feel blessed to have reconnected with her on Facebook as we prepared for our 30th class reunion. What a beautiful woman she was and an incredible wife and mother. The world is certainly a better place because she was here. She will be missed.
