  1. Sue was one of my dearest friends. There is a space in my heart and mind, where I will carry and treasure the plethora of memories we created. Ron and I treasure the outings, vacations, game nights, lunches, dinners, visits, that we spent together. Sue, you were a warrior. You showed us how to live and love, along with how to make the best of a difficult situation. Your love and grace blessed my life. See you again my friend.️
