While I did not know Sue all that well, it sounds like she lived a very full life and probably impacted lots of people in a positive manner.  We will miss you.

Susan was a friend through grade school and high school. She was always cheerful and full of fun. We didn't see each other very much after high school but we did keep in touch. I am sad that she is gone
