Condolence & Memory Journal

Sue, You were one of my dearest friends from the very beginning of my marriage to Jack. We had the best times, especially in our condo in the mountains and here on Marco. We loved sharing books, wine and life-time issues. You were a very strong person and influenced me with your ideas and strength. You were also a wonderful cook, and I have many of your recipes. I loved your visits to Marco and some of our late-night phone calls. You told me you loved me, and I will always treasure that.
