I am so very sorry for the family's loss of Sue. I was just so shocked that this happened. I never even knew of her even getting sick in all the years I have cleaned for her. I can only imagine the hole this will be in your lives. I have to share a memory with you and I think it will make you smile. One time I came to clean and there was tape everywhere. Sue told me how much fun the kids were having doing this and I told her never to give them the tape again. LOL I didn't think I was ever going to get it all off, it seemed to be EVERYWHERE! Also, I like Rabbits and Sue liked her plants. One day it looked like it was going to storm and Sue was at work, I could not help myself, I let the rabbit out of the trap and left Sue a note to tell her why I did it. I am sure she wasn't too happy with me, but she was kind enough not to set the traps when I was coming to work for her. She only took them to a wooded area and let them go free. She could never keep up with the bunnies though. I know Sue is in a wonderful place now, but I will miss her, too. Lots of years with her.

Sending love to Sue's family and friends in this unexpected departure. I had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with Sue during a Sheila planned Canyon Ranch vacation!! We connected right away - so kind and fun. She will be truly missed. Sincerely, Linda Lakind
