Susan was truly a lovely person. We grew up together and often talked about all the fishing trips we took with her Dad and my oldest brother. We had a lot of great memories shopping together, ski trips with Jack, my son and her daughter Kara. We kept in touch by phone often. She will be missed very much by not only me but so many friends and relatives. Rest in peace Sue.
