    Gene, Karen, Kelly, Keith and Kevin, We were saddened to hear the news of Sue’s passing. Please know that we are praying for your family that God’s comfort will be close to you at this time of sorrow. We will always be grateful to Sue for giving me (Rosie) my first job after graduating from college. That specific job (Instructor @ CFCC for Development Delays - The Gift Program) opened up many other career doors after leaving CFCC. Sue was an awesome friend, mentor and loved by all who knew her. I remember many many days of telephone conversations where Sue and I laughed and talked and laughed and talked. She was always positive and willing to help anyone in need. Sue was generous and kind. Of all the amazing things that we personally knew about Sue, the most important thing to Sue, the one thing that made her happiest, was her family. Sue loved her family. They brought her the most joy. She talked about them often with a smile. We are thankful that we had the honor to know Sue. She has left a wonderful impact on all who knew her. Love & Prayers, Dwayne & Rosie Tootoo Rugg
