Not sure what to say?

I miss your skating update emails, as my
Mom and I still sit here wanting to ask your questions. I loved sitting with you in KC, MO... and I still love your sister Jane

Though two years have passed, I still think of Susan every time I watch a figure skating competition on television. She was and still is missed.

I knew Susan both through Bonanza and figure skating and have a particularly fond memory of meeting her at one of the Bonanza conventions. I loved the Grote Awards and looked forward to televised skating events for the pleasure of searching for (and finding!) her in the audience. She was always kind-hearted and generous in her critiques of my writing, and, of course, I enjoyed hers, as well. No one could portray Shirtless Joe like Susan! I will miss her greatly, and I hope that knowing...

I have so many great memories of being with my friend, Sue! We were together all through Sts. Peter and Paul Grade School and Regina High School. She visited me in Milwaukee when I went away for college. We camped together as Campfire Girls....rode that bus 100 times to Day Camp, and slept in big old tents at Camp Firefly for overnight camping. Sue and I were always in each other's lives as we grew from little girls to women out on our own. Even though our adult lives took different paths I...

Never have we met such an avid sports fan! Not only a fan, but a true repository of all kinds of sports information.

Sue got us involved with the season ticket group of the Cincinnati Reds, for which we will always be grateful. It has been a real positive in our lives (and that of our children and grand children) over the past 38 years.

Thanks, Sue. We'll miss you. There will never be another Sue Grote!

Sue was a wonderful person, full of life and fun. Those of us in the skating-fan world relied on her knowledge and hard work to keep us up to date on events, results, and the universally popular "Grote Awards." Skating - and life - will not be the same without her. We send our deepest condolences and love to the entire Grote family: you have lost a gem and we have all lost a friend.

So sorry for your loss. May you find comfort and strength in God's promise found at John 6:40

I was greatly saddened to hear the news of Sue's passing. I will always be grateful to Sue for her generosity of time and spirit in her capacity as President of our condominium board. She worked very hard at making our building a truly wonderful place to live. Sue served her community unselfishly, and she will be greatly missed. Sincerest condolences to Sue's family.

I am so sorry to hear of Susan's passing. I met her on the Bonanarchy Bonanza list. She was such a sweet lady. She will be greatly missed.
