I am so sad to hear of Sue's passing. She was one of the biggest and most positive influences in my life. She was my Camp Fire leader from 1976 to 1982. I have so many good memories of her and the camping trips, crafts and many other learning and fun activities we shared. My heart goes out to her family and my prayers are with you all at this time. I know I will see Sue again in Heaven one day. Love to her family and may God bless you all.

I only learned today that Sue had passed away. I am so sorry for her family's loss. I only knew her through my job, but she always made me smile whenever I saw her. She will be missed.
