    Her laugh, her gorgeous blue eyes and her stories.... She was the best storyteller...I know Sue for 40 plus years...Even though you weren't my Aunt Sue and Uncle Tommy in he traditional way, you've been that to me all of these years...I feel so blessed to have seen you beautiful Sue at Victoria and Michael's wedding. We sat and talked like no time had passed and I will never forget your words to me after we hugged so tight "I am so happy for you Alisa that you are finally so happy". It was never about Sue.... She always put others before matter if you were family, a friend or someone she just met...So many memories were made in my early years... taking the ferry, the year the Rangers won the Stanley cup, Christmases, birthdays with the kids and all of us being pregnant together!!! Heaven gained an amazing Angel. You will never be forgotten... you're legacy lives on in your amazing girls Taylor and Paige and Tommy and through all of the lives you have touched. All my Love to you Sue ... Rest easy until we are all together again. Alisa xoxo

    Susan was a lovely, wonderful, soft spoken person. She rescued me from the life of an empty nester by giving me the opportunity to be a Meals on Wheels volunteer and for that I am eternally grateful. I can't believe you are not with us anymore. RIP Susan. You will be missed. Paula Onah

    I worked with Sue several years ago and I'm very sad to hear she passed. RIP Sue and my condolences to your family. She was such a caring and sweet person and even though its been years, I still remember her being kind to me when I was going through a very tough time in my life.

    Tom, Taylor and Paige, I am so sorry for your lost. Susan was always kind and sweet. She always said "hi neighbor" when she worked at Pathmark. My little sister also remembers her kindness. Nilsa

    Sue was the most loving person even when things were going crazy she kept a level head. I worked with her and Tom at meals on wheels always had a cheery smile and greeting. She will be sorely missed taken too soon. Rest In Peace Sue
