Clancy and I took Holy Communion to Sue for several years. It was so special to meet her family in Wilmington. Sue was a joy to be with, always a funny story or remembrance. She will always be remembered by us. Pat & Clancy Must

I really enjoyed knowing "Sue" and working with her while attending PACE. She was so proud when we were able to get her up walking again and later when her health declined, she was so proud of her "new" wheelchair. She was always so loving and cared so much for others around her. She would always encourage and route on whoever else was in PT at the same time she was.
Peace be with the family at this time of loss. Barbara Smith, LPTA Elderhaus PACE
