    My deepest condolences for your loss. Sue was my next door neighbor and although we didn’t chat often when we did Sue was always kind and sweet. I recall her telling me her story of moving into the house and smiling because she was so vibrant. I’ll miss seeing her out and about. Prayers for your whole family.
