Mary Ellen Edwards stayed in touch with her and sent us this lovely tribute:


"Tommy, Kathy and Mary, You know how I loved your Susie, so you know how much I will miss her. We had been friends since 10th grade, and her loyalty to our friendship was always evidenced in so many ways. I have a craft that she made in every room of our house - and even in our little guest house. So I think of her all the time, all the time, and still marvel at her many talents. But most of all, I treasure memories of her unwavering kindnesses. Even our grandchildren have fond memories of things she did with and for them when they vacationed at Tom's Cove. That's pretty special and unique. I hope that you find comfort in knowing what a loving, caring, wonderful person your wife and mother was to so many. She'll be my friend forever."
