    Ron JR & Lisa,

    It is so sad to know that Susie is no longer with us. I and Linda (Dillabough) Johnivan were very close friends of your Mom. We had lots of fun together when we were growing up. She will be sadly missed.

    I will never forget when me and my children lived across the street from Sue, Ronnie, & Lisa. Sue & I would visit back & forth and she always had a cup of coffee ready and time to visit, whether it was advice from a friend or just to get together and have a good laugh. When we moved, although Sue & I didn’t get together as often, we still remained friends. When we seen each other in the store,she always had a hug for me. She was a great person and will be missed by my entire family. Sue,we love you. Ron & Lisa, are thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Sonia Warner & family
