Dear Gerry (Hobie)
So very sorry for the loss of your sister. I loved reading about Suanne, & remember meeting & talking to you both at the Spartan gatherings. She was a very sweet lady. John enjoyed you at the golf outings. Thinking of you. I guess no more reunions. We’re doing fine, & hope you are.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sue many years ago. She was a dear lady to wait on, and was always so sweet! I will always remember our chats. I don’t believe I ever saw her shopping with out being dressed up, wearing lip stick and walking in high heels. My thoughts and prayers for Gerald.

My Dear Aunt Sue was a lovely, beautiful person that I will always miss and love. Aunt Sue had a wonderful sense of humor and a kind heart. She loved life and her sense of style was amazing. Aunt Sue enjoyed a good book and was a avid reader. Her teaching career was a long heartfelt journey. She treasured her students. Our Love for Aunt Sue has no end. We’ll miss her always. Rest peacefully in God’s loving arms. She will always be remembered with love. Sandy Henderson Groat (niece)
