  • Dear Heather and Kim,
    I am so very sorry to hear about your dear Mom’s passing. I actually just heard the news, so I am writing this message.
    I very much enjoyed working with Susan in the pediatric department at Christiana Hospital. After I left that department we would still chat here and there when we were able. In February Sue called me and we talked for over and hour. I had been thinking about your mom for several weeks and wanted to reach out and talk to her. I am so sad that I won’t be able to do that now. Just know that Sue was a very wonderful, kind and beautiful lady who will be missed.
