Sue was a great friend of my parents and I. She was my “freckle twin” and I love her dearly. She had an amazing spirit, laughter and light about her. My prayers to Tom and family - she will be greatly missed.

Aunt Susie was always so much fun to be around! I looked forward to seeing her every time she came to Michigan to visit. Even though she lived down in Florida my entire life, she always sent me a card on my birthday and it made me feel so special. Every time we came down to Florida and visited Aunt Susie and Uncle Tom, they went above and beyond to make sure our time with them was the best. You treated everyone in the family like they were your best friend and you were such a good person. You will be missed
