  1. Sue was my second cousin. As kids, we would get together when our parents played cards and sing & dance to all the great songs at that time. We also went swimming together at the pool close to her house. She was a wonderful person! Even tho we didn’t keep in touch as much later in life, I will always have great memories with Sue. She was also very special to my parents.

  2. Our hearts are broken with the loss of Sue. She was an awesome friend to many. We’re sending big hugs to Curt and kids (and Daisy). Thank you, Curt, for taking such great care of her when she needed you most. Heaven just got a little more exciting! We Love You, Mike & Val Easter

  3. My heart is hurting. I really love Sue. She was a sweet, kind woman and I am so glad that I got to know her and Curt. I will truly miss her laughter and our talks about our fur babies. Rest in Peace my dear friend. Jennifer Meath

  4. Sue and I met many years ago and formed a friendship so strong. We knew what each other was thinking or when one of us just needed a hug or a phone call. We were there for each other for many things that happen in life…joy, sorrow, anger, loss, … whatever and whenever. Sue encouraged me and many others to follow our dreams. Her passing away wasn’t in those however. I miss her greatly every moment. Each day I go to pick up the phone and remember my friend has passed on to a peaceful pain-free life. I saw true love with her and Curt. Curt and Daisy – even though I’m many miles away now you are in my prayers and thoughts. Hope to see you again soon.

  5. To Curt and Family,
    I’m sorry to here about the loss of Sue. Every time I saw her, she was always happy & bubbly. A thing we need more of in this world. I’m sure she will be missed.
