I am so sorry to hear about Sue's passing.  I was a friend of hers in high school and have such wonderful memories of her laughter and spirit.  I love the picture you have chosen to represent who she was - she definitely enjoyed life and brought much joy to others. She definitely made the world a better place.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sue Cohick
We are undoubtedly among the many people whose life was touched by Sue.  In so many ways she was the most beautiful woman we ever knew.  Her sphere of influence was wide and we felt privileged to have known her in our own small way.  Our very sincere condolences to her children and immediate family.  The world has lost one of the "good ones."  But we are all better people for having known Sue.
