    My condolences to Susan's family. I originally met Susan during our many years of working together at the County of Simcoe. I also had the extraordinary pleasure of meeting with Susan and Bill outside of work, in their home in Barrie. Susan taught me of a new life beyond the norm. She taught me of higher powers and living within. I still have that connection and continue to learn all because of her. I have such gratitude. She will be missed but her spirit will always be near by.

    Condolences to Sue’s family and friends. Sue and I worked together for many years at the County of Simcoe, she was a no nonsense girl, that marched to her own tune. I was fortunate to see a softer side and enjoy her witty sense of humour. Even though I never met Bill, the happiest I seen Sue was when he came into her life. I remember when she was going to retire and everything she was planning to do, it’s nice that she was able to fulfill those dreams. Sending my deepest sympathies to her husband and children.
