    Dear Larry (and Sue’s other family, who I did not have the pleasure of meeting),

    Please accept Andrew’s and my deepest condolences for your tragic loss.
    We were just getting to know you through our participation in the Jewish community here on the island and on the cusp of exploring our mutual love and interest in music, especially all things jazz and saxophones, I regret that I was not able to get to know Sue more intimately before her passing. Yet I still feel grateful for having known her even just a little bit. I trust that as your grief subsides, we will renew our intention to make music together and become better acquainted. In that way, I also hope to get to know Sue a bit more as you share your memories of what seems to have been a happy and productive life together.

    If you ever need to seek solace from your local friends or just need to “jam out” a little, I hope you will feel comfortable in looking to us to be there for you.

  • Fern and Bruce Green Posted June 30, 2018 2:47 pm

    Larry and family, we have many wonderful memories of Sue and your family that go way back. We will always cherish our friendship and our early get togethers. You are a wonderful family and Sue was a force of love and positivity. We feel very fortunate that Sue was part of our lives even though our time was short. We send our love and condolences. Love, Fern and Bruce
