Susan was my friend. I saw her at the football game. She was an amazing person I knew I miss her and love her. Susie also was an amazing mother to Josh and Jen Lombardo

Sue was a student of mine years ago. I remembered her fondly.I ran into her some years back when I purchased glasses at Dr. DeSimone's office. And then, we reconnected when we met at Dr. Simon's office and she told me what she was going through. I looked forward to seeing her there. She was so sweet and kind, and when I saw her obituary, I broke down in tears. That is the impact she had on me. She was a lovely young woman. I will miss seeing her and talking to her in the oncology suite. She talked about her family and her children often.I am so sorry for your loss!
