Sue was such a blessing to so many. Such a fantastic coworker. Kindness and caring words were second nature to her. I treasure that I met her, knew her, and had a friendship with her. The world needs more people like her. She will be thought of often; especially when I use the thoughtful basket she gifted to me.

Jerry, Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of Sue, it is never easy to loose your special partner in life, She was very Loving, Caring, Generous, Giving, and Informative. I always enjoyed our conversations when we were all together over the Holidays at Judy and Jim's. I'm sure she will be looking down on you as your "Guardian Angel"

Such sadness hearing Susan passed. She was one of the kindest people I have met. Got to know her at the Flea Market where Jerry and she set up. She was kind, generous and extremely caring. I will miss her smile, her quiet laugh and her love of glass that we shared. Rest in Peace sweet lady.
