    Deepest sympathy to Sue’s family and friends. Working with Sue at Lilly was a pleasure. My family also camped with her and her husband with the Lilly Campers and had great fun. I carry fond memories of your mother and enjoyed her friendship. May God provide you comfort thru this difficult time.

    My sympathies to Sue’s family. I worked with her at Lilly when I first started. She took me under her wing and taught me many valuable things about purchasing. She was so much fun to be around and I really enjoyed her stories. Prayers of comfort for the family.
