    My heart is so heavy. Sue was a lovely and kind person. She always wrote the most beautiful notes. She and her husband were a loving couple and it was a blessing to have known her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family with much love, Lori

    Suzanne was married to my cousin Bernard (who is related to my late maternal grandmother, Anne McKeever Ferguson), but I did not know her very well. Then one day, last St. Patrick Day, I met Sue at a family party and had a long visit with her and Bernard. I finally got to know her a little bit that day and am so glad I did. I instantly liked her and feel blessed I was able to spend this short time with her and Bernard. My heart goes out to him and their kids and grandkids who will miss her sorely.
