Susie was the only girl my age on the block we grew up in. I have seen her at Class of 65 reunions forever and admire her stamina and desire to connect. We are all connected. God speed your journey, and I love you, Susie. I am so glad that I spent some time with Sue and her mother at the class reunion in 2010, and also at the Bohnenville reunion. I love all of you Ryans. Celebrate Sue's life. Wish I could be there. Your childhood friend, Kathy Angermeyer in Halfmoon Bay, BC.

Sue, Thanks for being such an inspiration to us all. You did all the right things. You never complained. You were a positive force in the face of adversity. Maybe now you can get back to your artwork. Say “Hi” to Dad for us. Keep smiling…much love… Your little brother, Dick

Bob and I are so sorry to hear of our classmate passing. Our lives were better for having known her Bob and Lynne Keller
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

In high school, maybe the junior or senior year, Sue gave me my first book of poetry. It was Lawrence Ferlingetti's 'Coney Island of the Mind'. It stirred in me the beginnings of an aesthetic life of which I have always been grateful for. In remembrance of Sue I quote from Rumi, "Let what you love be what you do". Mahalo nui loa to Sue, Greg LeGault
