Dear Phil, Anne and Steve, My condolences on your mother’s passing. I remember a petite lady with a pretty smile, and a southern drawl, that made me smile. Her passing also brought to mind, many fond memories of our teenage years. The dinner at First Place West, sharing a ski lift with her at Porkie Pine Mountain, and the countless times your home was open to all of us kids. While our folks may have driven us batty at times, we gave them plenty of reasons. My love to you and thanks for the good times.

Sue FInney Langhoff, Mequon, WI

Our condolences to Phil, Anne and Steve with families, Ever since I was an exchange student living with your family in 1974 I have considered Sue as my "American Mom". Sue gave me all her love and care as if I was one of her own children. A generous and caring woman always with focus on the best for her family and friends. Your are in our thoughts. Love, Johan with family

May you be strengthened by Gods promise found at John 6:40, where he gives the hope of seeing Sue again by saying “for this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life and I will resurrect on the last day”. As you await the fulfillment of Gods promise, may you find a measure of comfort in your cherished memories of Sue. My heartfelt condolences to your family for your loss.
