  1. Susan and I became friends when working together at Nine Mile Point. She was always so much fun to be around! We lost touch after she moved away. I am very sad to read of her passing. She was a very sweet person.

  2. I haven’t seen Sue in years, but I carry such fond memories of our days spent together at Fitzhugh Park School and girl scouts. She was a great childhood friend!
