    I worked with Sue for 6 years, about 15-20 years ago, and she was such a fun person to work with! I can still hear her voice, and her laugh –it always made me smile! I was working with her when she reconnected with John—it was so emotional for her. She loved her family, and mentioned them often. I wish I could come to the service, but I need to work. I miss her very much, and my condolences to all. I will always remember her laugh!

    My condolences to Matt, Mike and respective family. I have beautiful memories… As a kid she got me to love three bean salad! I hate green beans but Id eat anything she made. I was blessed to have grown up around you both and witnessed the love that your parents put into you. God bless…

    I am so sorry for your loss. Sue and I were great friends in Ludington before she went to GR and I moved to Kalamazoo. We had so many great times together. I was honored to be in her wedding party. She was a great friend to me. Rest in peace my friend.
