I am so sad to hear of Sue's passing. The sweetest woman I ever knew. Your family was blessed to have such a special woman as a Mom because everyone she touched was better for knowing her. Anyone who had her as a teacher told me she was the best teacher they ever had. Kind, understanding, patient and supportive. We shared many conversations about our love for horses and I truly admired the extent of equestrian skill she had experienced in her life. It is rare to meet someone who truly understands this passion.

I extend my deepest sympathy to everyone who has lost your remarkable soul along with my sincere belief that, like the horse, your spirit will remain free and unbridled until the end of time.

"The horse moved like a dancer, which is not surprising. A horse is a beautiful animal, but it is perhaps most remarkable because it moves as if it always hears music."
By Mark Helprin, "A Winter's Tale"
