    "they are before the throne of God

    and serve him day and night in his temple;

    and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.

    "Never again will they hunger;

    never again will they thirst.

    The Sun will not beat upon them,

    nor any scorching heat.

    For the lamb at the center of the throne

    will be their shepard;

    he will lead them to the springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

    I'm not sure if you remember me.  I went to high school with Sue.  My Last name was Gass back then.  I was saddened to read about Sue in the newspaper.  I will always remember her great smile. I regret not having kept in touch with either of you.  What I remember most about Sue is her passion for life and her joy.  She loved to make others laugh and she always did!  I also remember a serious side to Sue - one that she expressed through the heart felt poetry she wrote in high school.  Know that my prayers are with your family during this difficult time.  I know she is greatly missed.


    Jan Cryder, Trenton, Illinois,

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Sue's husband Mark, her brothers Rick, Tom & Danny also her parents Mr & Mrs Serkin.

    So sorry Marianne...

    Be sure to lean on your neighbors...

    They need you as much as you need them. I know you will comfort each other in so many ways that others

    cannot. Jesse's accident was/is

    a life changing tragedy for all of us.

    We will never be the same.

    Does it help to know our family knows exactly how your family feels?

    I think in a strange way it does...
