|Let the memory of Suzanne be with us forever|

The Funeral Service will be on Tuesday July 30th at 11am at the Second Baptist Church. Our mother was very fond of the beacon project so any donations in her name are appreciated: http://www.islesborobeacon.org/donate/
"Happy 81st Birthday Mom!"
"Happy Birthday Mom, we miss you so much!"
"Amy, you mention Sue's sister's name as Elizabeth. I thought her name was Marshall. When Sue and I met the 2nd half of sophomore year, I knew. she had recently lost her older and only sibling in a sailing accident in (I think) Long Island. She had been a student at U.of Mich. or U.of Wisc. or somewhere out west. Sue was now an only child also."
"A day does not go by that I do not think of my dear friend Suzanne--especially today on her birthday. We exchanged cards every year and always looked forward to meeting in the early spring for lunch on the mainland. I miss you Sue."
"I never drive past Sue's house without mentally picturing her and Taffy walking up the road. I miss them both every day."
"You are the first Middlebury classmate whom I really miss. Our lives paralleled each others so nicely that I felt so comfortable confiding in you. I especially remember a fun ski trip we took to Mt. Snow after graduating. Thanks for your friendship over the years."
"I join my husband, Pierre, in his tribute to Sue !"
"Amy, I'm notifying Middlebury (I'm class correspondent). Sue and I were in contact over the years, even though she was in Maine and I in N. Calif. I had been to her family home in Brooklyn. She annoyed me that she refused to do e-mail. I had three snail-mail Xmas cards to do/call. Yesterday did one call and Sue was to be next"
"Donna and I were shocked to hear about Suzanne's passing. We'll be arriving on Islesboro Aug 7 for our annual get together with family on Hewes Point Road. So sad we'll miss her memorial, having her stop by to get Taffy a drink on their walks, her Sewing Circle Fair hug and hearing, "Good to see you again, kissing cousin!" :) Rest in Peace, Sue..."
"I live on Islesboro two houses away from Sue and Taffy. That's how all of my family and friends have always referred to her. Sue was a dear friend to me and my daughter Betsy and my husband Bruce. We loved her dearly and I know she knew this. I loved and will forever miss our daily connections that occurred by chance or by me stopping in because taffy wouldn't let me by without a "hug"."
"I have been blessed to know Sue through her marriage to my cousin, and we became lifelong cousins, sharing the love of family, history, handcrafted items, gardening and values. Her strong values of love of her family and friends, and service to her church and community created a charismatic, joyful person to know and love. I'm glad I knew and loved her, and I always will. God bless!"
"Sue was my oldest and dearest friend from childhood in Rockville Centre. Overnight visits to Islesboro were always so special after I too moved to Maine. We shared our passion for gardening and exchanged our favorite plants. I was blessed to have had such a lasting connection with such a wonderful, strong woman. Sue will be missed by everyone who knew her."
Since my first travel to US and for all my life, you will stay in my mind.
In Chappaqua, Islesboro or FireIsland yesterday, in my thoughts and my prayers since today.
"2 short stories: a very strong memory from when I was around 12 and spent time with my pretty and smart aunt sue at Fire Island; and during my interview for my first job out of college, the interviewer asked me if I was related to Sue McLaughlin from Chase--to this day, I am convinced I got the job because of her! Rest in Peace, Aunt Sue, and know you live on in our loving memories"
"Dear Suzanne,when I met Amy, I knew we'd be friends for life! And through her, I made a few other friends for life. For that I am so happy and blessed. Thank you for raising such a beautiful daughter, a true tribute to you."
"To Amy's mom,
I never met you but I did receive a beautiful hand made Christmas wreath made from the branches you all collected, made with love by Amy. You have an amazing daughter who is a life long friend. Her heart is HUGE and I'm grateful to you for her."
"…One of the very best of people;
The kind who insert themselves in life
And make others see the sun,
The kind of person one meets
Very rarely in one’s lifetime.
