I had the pleasure to work for Sue in loss prevention for several years. She had a way of bringing wit to any situation. I have many very fond memories of her. Very sad to hear of her passing.

Suzanne and I played tennis together back at Brookville High School. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was a great tennis player! I'm so sorry to hear that she passed away so young.

I met Suzanne at The Summit when her parents lived here. We became friends and once enjoyed going a train trip to Washington, DC, I benefited from numerous dinners because Sue was an excellent cook. I will miss her. She left is too soon.

My condolences to the family. When losing a loved one it can be unbearable. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (
