My condolences to Sue's family. She was always so very kind to me growing up, from driving the bus to our color guard competitions, and when I was a loud teen on the bus to Aquaculture. I have such fond memories of making her laugh and her kind, mothering nature. She is fondly remembered and will be deeply missed. May she rest in peace.

Sorry I missed your wake. My love to all, MaryJane Libretti.
