    I am so sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. I lost touch with her several years ago (didn’t get a Christmas card from her), but have never stopped thinking of Sue. I even tried to locate her by finding Mark or Christy with no luck. We had such fun times at work!! She was one of a kind & a special friend. She will surely be missed. Mark & Christy, I would be at her funeral, but I have medical appointments starting at 1:00, but please know that I will be thinking of you both. Would love to hear from you. God bless you both & your families.
