    • It's taken ...

      It's taken six months to write this as I never knew how to put into words how I felt learning of your tragic end. As we learn of the CTV building's faults, and I see people I knew in that building who survived tell the tale, it simply was not right that you were taken so brutally. Susan you were my boss at the CCC Communications Unit and we shared cigarette breaks on the roof top in Tuam Street. You were savvy and smart. A little initimidating with your beauty thrown in as well :) but you were very real and a dynamic person who had great compassion. No surprise you moved into the counselling field! I saw you once lecturing at Canty Uni, your passion and knowledge about psycology was awesome. Thank you for being in my life and helping shape who I am today. Fly with the angels and I hope you get to bathe in the sunshine forever.

      Susan - I was blessed to have been at your special day - the day you married Richard. It was a pleasure to have enjoyed your laughter, your captivating smile and your soft caring nature.
      The knowledge that you had the power to make changes for the better to people's lives, will never go unnoticed -
      RIP - you will be dearly missed but your memory will be deep in all our hearts forever

    • I'll remember Sue forever

      Sue was a close friend when she lived in London. We shared a flat for a while, and she was with me when I met my husband in Portugal in 1987. She was bubbly and fun but also introspective and reflective.
      My condolences to Karen and the rest of the family. I'll miss Sue forever.
      Love, Teresa

    • RIP Susan

      Susan, you helped me so much over that 2 year period a few years ago. I will never forget your genuine concern and kindness. You helped me to realise that life is worth living. I am so terribly sad that you are gone. You would always finish a text or a phone call with "take care"...So take care Susan, I am so glad I had the chance to meet you. RIP. C.
