I am so sorry to hear about Susan. We went to Nursing School together...and she would often give my sister Ann and I a ride "home" to Kingston to my grandparents on weekends. I worked at Kingston Hospital for many years and heard Susan was working at Benedictine. She was a good person and I know she will be missed by many.
