AS a friend and coworker of Sue, I would like to express my sympathy. I worked with Sue for 13 years at SEMC. Sue was like the mother of the office. We shared lots of stories about our kids and grandkids. She will be truly missed. May the gentle hand of God touch your heart with peace and comfort you though your loss.

I was saddened to hear of your loss. I worked with Sue for 8 years at SEMC Pathology before her retirement. We had many conversations and I found her a great giver of advice.
