    My dear Aunt Susie is a ray of sunshine – so bright and warm. Her kindness and love for her family and for others will never be forgotten. Her smile and her Hi, Hi greeting are what I will miss about her most but I am certain one day I will see her again. To Uncle Vic, Allison and Vicki, et al, Doug and I wish you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. With love and hugs, Karen and Doug Weaver.

    I am so saddened to learn of Sue’s passing. We were tennis partners on many occasions and shared so many laughs while on a traveling tennis team. Sue was a deeply caring and sensitive person and I can only imagine the emptiness for Vic and family.

    So sorry to hear that Sue is no longer with us. She was an awesome tennis player and partner–we had many fun times winning and losing matches home and away. She loved life, and enjoyed it to the fullest. So many wonderful memories we will have of her…Thinking of Vick and the girls. Joanne
