ForeverMissed

Loving someone and losing them, not a moment past, is never easy. However, life is not about regrets and missed opportunities – it is about living it to the fullest and touching the lives of those you love and care for.

Sue Ann, your spirit and love endures in us all. There are so many stories of your life, which you shared so selflessly with those around you, and it would be careless if we did not share those moments with the countless people whose lives you have made brighter. For each one of us has a story, a quote, a happy if not painfully, sidesplitting, laughter induced, hands on our knees, hysterical memory of you. You were always only a phone call away, even at four in the morning, if we needed someone to talk to and feel loved when we thought it impossible. In our darkest moments, you were our light and though you are no longer with us in body, your spirit and memory lives on through us all.

Sinatra sang it best in My Way and the last thing Sue Ann would want is to have a room full of people sobbing for the wrong reason, or in her case, a football stadium filled to the brim! It is never goodbye, it’s see you later, though it may 'bring a tear to me glass eye'.

Please share a memory, photo, quote, anything to help keep Sue Ann's life and love alive and with us always.

Well Susie,

Been a while, think of you often especially when lights start to flicker.
I see that there are a few that still have not forgotten you - which brings joy to my heart. We also miss you being our 2nd Mom in command - LOL ! I know you hated that but, it was true. Thank you for also looking out for mom.

Miss and love you always

I remember all the times all of us had at St Joe’s! I think of you so often and laugh at all the things we did. The novel we wrote on Sister Dorothy‘s typewriter, stealing Dr Rothberg’s underwear, and all your teaching! I loved the jokes we played especially the ones with the fruit. I keep picturing you out here in California, with your hands on your hips, telling me to let them have it. I do. I'm not quite and shy anymore. Boy, would you have a ball in California with the medical community! You wouldn't believe it! I love and miss you! One day we will meet again. I know you are around because I think of you so very much! Thanks for the good times and the memories! You were and are very special to me! Until we meet again, keep them laughing! Happy Birthday in Heaven! The same as Dr Schiavone‘s and Kelly Hamula’s! You are all special. I still write a lot! I'm still taking care of people in my old age! You taught us all well! You are loved and missed so very much!♥️☦️❤️

I can hardly believe it has been ten years. Ten years of missing our wonderful friendship, sharing funny stories and great belly laughs, late-night conversations, your wisdom, your beautiful smile, and big, giant bear hugs. Sue Ann, you are loved tremendously and always remembered.

With much love to the Hoefler Family-

Happy 64th birthday My sister ...
it’s been 3,277 days since the last time we talked..... 11 days earlier on your 55th birthday I slipped out & pick you some white chocolate to fill you’re craving and simple birthday wish :)

It seems like yesterday

I’ve been listening to Frank Sinatra sing to us all day ..... as we did in Bethel 1993 on my first Thanksgiving trip ....
we play Jon Secada “ Just another day“
as we prepared incredible meal for your friends
We played that one song from the moment we woke up until that evening when everyone showed up for dinner .... You loved, helped & touched the lives of so many people!!!
then dance to the same song that Saturday @ the community Holiday party!! What a hoot!!! We defiantly knew the words !!

All Perfect Moments in time !!

Did i mention ...... "It seems like yesterday" !!!

I love you and miss you!!!
