Woody, Penny and families,
We are so sorry for your loss and can't imagine the heartbreak you are experiencing today and will for many days to come. Sue Ann was a wonderful person. She was a friend to all. Her honest opinions often brought laughter, but you always knew what she felt about any situation/topic. I will miss our conversations about events and the Yankees/Orioles debates.
She will be missed by so many. Please know that we are here for you and will help in any way possible. Cherish all the wonderful memories you have. God bless!
