Not sure what to say?

Dear cousins, Nancy and Tom, I am so saddened to hear about Susan's death. Although I hadn't seen in her in years, we stayed connected through Facebook after we moved to Florida. I have so many fond memories of all of us spending time together at Seabrook Beach. She will truly be missed.

Dear Tom and Nancy,
Though our paths have not crossed for a lifetime, I was so saddened to hear of Susan's death. My childhood friend from Converse Street til the class of 68 went our separate ways, Susan was kind and fun loving.
Please accept my deepest sympathy at this sad time. May your memories of Susan bring you peace.

I met Sue and the whole family through my long friendship with Nancy. It's odd how certain events leave an impression decades after. One that comes back was dinner with her family once, when she was living in Ipswich, which always seemed like a qauint old place to me. She was on this unusual spit of land with a wonderful view North. The special part was that we received a bit of a history lesson, first inside the house, then extending outside, about the "fiefors" -- the...

Nancy and Bob, I just got home from vacation and found out about your sister. I'm sorry for your loss.

I met Susan a couple of times but our primary relationship was on
Facebook. A lot of her was projected on that media and I felt that I got to know her pretty well. Gonna miss you, Sue. Condolences to Tom and the family.

So sorry to hear this news. All her friends from the Class of 68 knew her as a unique, fun, and caring person. I was so looking forward to getting together this summer in Newburyport to share high school memories. She will be sorely missed by many, but we'll remember those good times.

Sue and I were teammates while she was a member of the Cambridge Sports Union. She was the swimmer for a team I was on for a triathlon in Topsfield that did surprisingly well. I also knew her as a dedicated teacher. Sincere condolences to her family. She will be missed by us all.

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to see Sue perform with the Senior Readers at the Firehouse Theater in Newburyport this past winter. She did a great job with her reading - her passion for the theater was obvious. Prior to that, life had gotten in the way, and It had been many years since I had seen Sue. Back in the 1980s, Sue and I lived a few blocks from each other in Beverly and, for a while, we had a Sunday evening routine of swimming laps together at the YMCA. We gave each other the...

Nancy, so sorry for your loss. May all your memories provide comfort to you.
