Thanks, Dan, for sharing the sad news. Sue & her loved ones have been in my
thoughts and prayers since Roger let us know Sue had been hospitalized, and
I'm heart-broken that a recovery wasn't to be.
Unlike many of you, I didn't know Sue from her classroom days - she had
moved on to other things by the time my dd was there. I first got to know
Sue through shared interests, but for me, the most significant impact she
had on my life was her support for me as the parent of a child with special
challenges. Her encouragement, support, and validation - not to mention her
reality checks - helped me never give up advocating for my dd, and to
negotiate the sometimes bumpy transition of successfully parenting an older
teen into adulthood while remaining at least somewhat sane :*-)
Godspeed, Sue - you will be deeply missed and made a helluva positive impact
on our community.
My deepest sympathies to Sue's family & loved ones. I'm so very sorry.
Never retract, never explain, never apologize - get the thing done and let

I know many folks on the vizzz have probably been wondering, and I might
even be the last to know; Sue passed beyond the mortal plane last night.
I'll always remember her as the G/T teacher at the high school, and how it
seemed like she did all she could to keep that Texas drawl. Many years
passed between my HS days and my run for city council, but being the
excellent teacher that she was, she remembered having me as a student. We
may not have always aligned politically, but I like to think that we had
some mutual respect, and I put up with her teasing me a bit about those
awkward teenage years. No matter what we agreed or disagreed on, she was a
nice lady, and a lady in the truest sense.
She'll be missed. Keep her family in your thoughts.
P.S. A lot of people to keep in our thoughts here lately.
