  3. Dan and Sterling family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Hold your memories close to your hearts. May God hold her in the palm of is hand.

    Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  4. Dan, you will be in my thoughts and prayers for a long, long time. You and Sue have been and remain a source of strength to me. I will be out of state until next week which means I will be unable to attend calling hours and services. God Bless and give you the strength to endure. Blessings to your children. RIP, Sue.

  5. Fly high my sweet angel. Dan,Cassie,Mary,Ricky,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Please know we are always here for you, we love you all. Susie Q will be missed so much, she is my very best friend, and Sammie looked up to her like a second mom, and was so thrilled she went to help her pick out her senior ball gown. I cant imagine life without her, but we have each other, and our fond memories we will continue to share.

  6. My condolences to the entire family. May the God of all comfort be with you and strengthen you at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4

  7. Sending our love from Utah. I heard a lot of great things about the ‘Young side’ family. I wish we could have actually met when we were out there. You guys are in our thoughts.

  8. Dan and Family,

    There aren’t words to express how sorry I am over Sues passing. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone you love, but maybe knowing how she touched others will ease your pain. I will always remember how she would scold me for saying something “mean” or would reply “Pierino!” whenever I said “Susan!”. She always told me how shy she was but that just made teasing her all the more fun. I can still hear her laugh and feel her presence, and that always makes me smile. I’m grateful to have been her friend and I will always cherish the many memories I have of her.

    God bless.

    Love and hugs,

  9. My wife, Lyn and I spent several Thanksgivings with the Sterlings of Greece, NY. We are connected by marriage (our daughter, Beth married Julie Sterling). It was at these rollicking family feasts where go to know Sue. She was the one of the ones who kept things calm and moving. I remember her friendly manner above all. Always with a smile and friendly words for the Italian interlopers.

    To Dan and his family, Sue will always be a warm memory to me. She was special.

  10. To the Sterling family, I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Sue at BJ’s, she was a great friend and will be truly missed. RIP Sue until we meet again.

  11. Dan and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know the special, funny, tearful and crazy memories you have with Sue will soon be a source of comfort. Many positive thoughts and prayers are being sent your way. God Bless,

  12. Dan and family, my condolences for your loss. Dan, it was obvious to those around you how much you and Sue loved each other and in the way you spoke about her, she was your world. I think every time we rode our bikes or I saw you on the your bike, Sue was with you enjoying the ride too, inseparable. You and Sue had great run and let remembrance of that give you strength to get through this sad time.

    God bless Sue, your family, and take care
