Sue Smith's Passing

It is with sadness that I post this message from Claudine. I'm sure many of you knew Sue as she has been on several trips; most recently the 2009 trip.

Hi everyone,
It came to my attention yesterday that several of you may not be aware that Sue Smith passed away last week. Here is the notification I received from Hal Burchard on May 27:

Susie passed away peacefully this morning. Rich, Morgan and Rick were by her side to say their final goodbyes. Private funeral services followed by a memorial ceremony are being arranged.
Rich, Morgan and Rick want to thank everybody for their incredible support during this hardest of times.

The Service will be this Saturday:
On Saturday June 6th there will be a private funeral service for the family followed followed by a Memorial Service at Sacred Heart Church in Bellevue. Please join us in remembering Susie. This service will start promptly at 1:00PM.

What a joy it was to be with Sue on our March trip, share her happiness and be with so many good friends. We will treasure those memories!
