My deepest sympathy to Angel and All of My Foley Cousins. I loved Sue so much Every thought of her makes me smile. I remember when we were only 4 years old spending time together with Aunt Vida. Then Sue got me through my teen years with music and laughter. We had our first babies only 4 months apart. The military took me away for awhile but I feel so blessed for getting close again over this last year. I will always remember her smile and the laughter she brought into my life. I love you all and wish for healing For your broken hearts and your comforted with all the wonderful memories of her. Robin

Our hearts and love go out to the whole family for the loss of Sue. We would see each other about once a year while out shopping in more recent years. We used to hang out together at family get togethers (Kathy, Karen, Sue, Julie, me, and Robin). Terri was so much younger than us, she missed out). Very sad
to think of her passing but what a nice person and great sense of humor. You’re in our thoughts and prayers!
