  6. “Beyond words” best describes my sadness upon hearing the news of Aunt Sue’ passing today. I can picture her face smiling, seemingly always. I remember the sound of her voice, and I remember how she always made me feel good. And in remembering her that way, I do manage a smile.

  7. Aunt Sue was one of the constants in my life and the mother of my favorite cousins. As long as I can remember, she was there. I will miss her deeply.
