It has been the most amazing journey caring for my best friend. It has brought me the most treasured memories that anyone person can have. I could not have done or survived what I have without the love of my amazing family especially my sister. To all of them my deepest love goes out to you. My Mother was THE TRULY THE MOST strongest person I know and I will forever treasure the strength she endured and the will she had. I will miss my Mom with all my heart and may she be at peace. I love you Mommy.

Even though the days ahead will hard, I know that she was cared for the best of my sister's ability ( both Pam and Kim ), I love you both more then you will ever realize ! My mother put a fight that I didn't know was even possible ! Just know that you will be missed DEARLY and that Pam and I TOGETHER will fill your GRANDMA roll to the best of our ability ! I LOVE YOU MOM !

I worked with Sue at Major Hospital many years ago. Sue & I along with Thelma Antrobus were the 3 Musketeers! We lost Thelma too soon, but Sue & I shared a very special friendship. I loved her very much and you are right - she was a very strong person - she amazed me. She was all about her family! Pam - I know that you are also a strong person, just like your Mom, having gone through so much yourself. Carry her memory in your heart!
