Sue and I became friends in elementary school (OLV) when she moved to Paramus. Through the years we shared so many joys and sorrows. A lifelong friend is a rare treasure, and one that is irreplaceable. Sue was a loyal and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She never hesitated when someone was in need. Her grace and courage in facing her illness was an inspiration to all of us. You will be missed and loved forever my dear sweet friend.
