Sue might have lost the battle but she certainly "won the war" and will reside in Heaven. Her smiling face and warm hug will be missed greatly as I entered Sonlight.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, suffering, struggle and loss and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. Sue was one of the beautiful people. We will miss you our dear friend.
