It is with a sad heart that we say we are so sorry for your loss. We loved Aunt Sue. Her smile and laughter could not be mistaken. She was kind and loving and we looked forward to visits. She made the best pies. She will truly be missed. Love and big hugs to you all.

I remember your family from St. Philip parish. We rode the same school bus. You were a wonderful family. My folks (Cy & Lucy Weissert) always thought a lot of your folks. My mom died almost 3 years ago at age 103. Just wanted to extend my sympathy.

My deepest sympathy to your family. Your mother was a very good friend to my sister (Mary Catherine Doyle). Mary Key and your mother were at the Beulah Club and later my sister moved to SAVE (a group home) and your mother came to visit here often. I really appreciated that. Your dad gave me communion when I was in the hospital. They were both wonderful and so kind. You should be very proud to have had them for your parents.
