Sue and I graduated from Taconic together and then about 8 years ago, I got a job right next door to the DOR. She is an inspiration to us all with her strength and will surely be missed. My thought and prayers are with her family and loved ones in this difficult time.

Dear Aunt Lorraine and Family, It is so hard to even know what to say after such a loss. Susie was such a strong, independent, loving woman. Her smile brightened a room. As a mother and grandmother, she gave of herself even during difficult times. She will be terribly missed. All of you will feel her watching over you along with her Dad. Sadly for us, the Sciola clan is very well represented in heaven. They have each other and we miss them all. May the love of your family and friends help to comfort and support you. We have to remember that she is at peace, no longer in pain. Love, hugs and prayers for all of you from the Gardner family.

To Jim. Jackie, Eric, Mrs Sciola, Pam, Kathy, Patrick, and the rest of Susie's family and friends, I am very sorry to have recently learned of Susie's illness and of her passing. It's been many years since I've seen most of you at the Friendship, the GEAA, in the neighborhood, etc. Those were fun times and great memories I cherish! Thank you for allowing me to join your circle of friendship! Susie looks like she never changed! Always smiling! Always having a good time... until recently, unfortunately. I'm sorry she had to struggle with that! I know it wasn't easy for her, or for you.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Lorraine & Family,
There are no words to adequately express how deeply saddened we are for all of you at this time. Susie was such a sweet woman and always smiling. She fought such a courageous battle and her suffering is over. She is now in Heaven with Uncle Doc and all of the Sciola family members who have gone before her. I would imagine she had quite a welcoming committee upon her arrival. Heaven has truly gotten an angel. Praying that memories of much happier days provide the strength to get you through the difficult times ahead. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this most difficult time. Much love,
