Nana was an incredible woman. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to get to know her over the past few years. She was a giver of LOVE and an amazing listener. Each time we would talk she was so eager to learn what was going on in our lives. While everything moves so fast in life, I felt as if time just slowed down to a peaceful pace when spending time with her. She always would respond to our stories by saying, "Oh that's WONDERFUL!". That along with her beautiful smile will be my lasting impression. God bless...

Sue was truly one very special lady. For 90 years she graced this earth and our family with warmth and sunshine. She taught us everything about faith, family, fun and fortitude facing the toughest of times. She was part of the greatest generation of men and women of the 20th century, so strong and resilient, yet loving, caring and always fun. We may never know their like again. She will be missed so very much by so very many. RIP dear beautiful sweet Sue.
