You may get a second note from me as I sent a condolence in the Times News obituary but not sure it went thru.

If anyone was a friend it was Sue. She was a very special, loving person. I was her hairdresser for about 40 years. We shared a lot of ups and downs. Sue was always there with a listening ear when I had problems. A great friend that will be missed but hope to see her some day.
