Memories Timeline


  1. Sue was a good friend since her husband, and I were assigned to Upper Heyford, England in the mid-80s. She and my late wife, Linda, worked together in the Supply Squadron there and the four of us became lifeling friends. Our friendship stood the tests of time and distance.
    My funniest memory is the time Sue came to visit us in San Antonio around 2005. She said to me one day, out of a clear blue sky: “You must really like growing your own tomatoes.” This caught me off guard since I hardly ever ate any tomatoes. I asked: “What makes you say that?” She told me she saw the fertilizer for them and took me out to the garage where she showed me the evidence – a half-used package of Miracle-Gro Tomato Plant Food. I had a really good laugh and told her I hadn’t read the word “Tomato” on the package before. I’d been using it on the roses and shrubs all summer long. We all had a pretty good laugh about that. We will miss Sue, but know she is in heaven with her good friend Linda, and that we’ll meet again.

  2. To Family and Friends of Susan
    Day by day, may the light of your memories heal your sorrow and ring you peace with sympathy.


  3. I first met Sue over three decades ago. We were drawn together by a common goal, but I soon discovered a keen mind and a kindred spirit in her. While our paths diverged several years later, we always stayed in touch with dinners or dog visits. She helped me greatly to understand dogs when I found my first one several decades later.

    As I process my loss and that of her friends and family, I still smile. Sue’s wit and the laughter that followed her everywhere are still with me. She taught me much; I hope I gave her something in return. She was a classy lady who faced some major losses and rose above all the challenges life threw at her. Since her passing, I have often thought, “I need to call Sue and tell her that.” I am comforted by the fact that she probably knows everything I know before I learn it. Still and always. Love ya.
