I didn't know or I would have came to the visitation. Sending condolences to Sues family, she was an amazing lady. When I first moved to Omaha, she made me feel welcome and always spoke to me no matter where I was. I visited with her twice at wabash and it saddens me to know she passed without me knowing however I do know that Sue was a person of tremendous faith and she is resting peacefully in our wonderful heavens up above.
