Jimmy and Duane , I know that you both will lean on each other at this sad time.. You are in our prayers!
You have my sympathy. We knew Sue (Luca) from River Village and we had the nice chance to meet her. She will be missed- Massey Family
Susan had a generosity of spirit I noticed early in her life. She had the gift of being a good listener and put much information to memory, like our Uncle Victor. She loved keeping family records and would sent letters full of family information pertinent to the date of the event to me and other cousins when a special anniversary in our life came up. She especially enjoyed knowing about my son’s career and all the movies he worked on. I’m so sorry she’s gone from our family of cousins. May James find solace in knowing how much she was appreciated abd Duane find comfort to know how loved she was. We also share being true Hawkeye fans. I will miss her.
