    I had the privilege of working with Sue in the Ft. Clayton Preschool Special Education Unit in Panama for a short time. Sue was easy going and full of life and laughter. She was great with the children and they loved her and her sense of humor. Rondy, I have thought of you and your mom often. I enjoyed teaching you and knowing you and your mom. My sincere condolences to you and your family. Prayers for peace and comfort.
