Sue was a truly original personality. She was very kind hearted and willing to help anyone with anything at any time. She pursued her work and interests with obsession. Sue had a unique vision of the world. And the world has now expanded for her.

Sue was my sister-in-law, and after my brother Doug died, she helped me with many different things and in many different ways over the years when my own family didn't. I will always remember her for that. God bless you Sue, and tell Doug I still miss him.

Sue was an amazing person with a huge capacity for love. She was dedicated to those she cared about and for causes she cared about. It is hard going into the office and knowing I will never see your smiling face again. I will miss our talks and your friendship.
