""Ms. Sue" was just one nickname she picked up from the little family we have at LSC Student Life. And she quickly became a much loved part of that family. We loved having her around; her smile brought joy and she had a way of making you feel like the only person in the room. She gave you her - her attention, her smile, her compassion and love. She will be missed but she will also be remembered, always with fondness, as "The Manager of the Director".
Dan, you and all of your family, will remain in my heart and prayers as you deal with this heavy loss. I pray you find peace and comfort and find joy in the memories you shared with this wonderful woman. "
"Ms Sue was such a people-person: she was always joyful and a delight to be around! I am so thankful that our paths crossed during this journey and we were able to share lots of laughter. To Dan and the entire family, please know that she will be sorely missed, but her spirit will live on through you all! May the Lord continue to be your strength, peace, comfort, and love during this time and days to come. "
"Susan was a very caring person that made you feel like you were part of the family as soon as you walked in the door. I'm grateful she had 3 wonderful children to pass that on for generations! I'm so very sorry for your loss!"
"Our sympathies to Rick Scott and family on the passing of your sister"
