Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,a smile,a kind word,a listing ear, an honest compliment, our the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.that's what Sue did to who ever needed a smile, hug or listing ear, She will be missed.
I hold a very special place in my heart for you Sue. We all miss you at Northfield. Rest in peace my friend.
