A sincere thankyou from the Stewart family.
Jacqui together with Sue and two other friends Alison and Moira formed a play group for their young children. When Jacqui became ill with dementia Sue organised day care for her by the three friends and later after Jacqui went into hospital care they provided after school care for young Alan.

I am so sorry to hear of Sue's passing. Sue was an amazing friend to me and a extraordinary nurse. When I was a new RN many years ago, she took me under her wing and offered me so much support, wisdom and kindness. Her determination to provide the best possible care (often going way above and beyond) is something I admired greatly and strive to achieve in my own nursing practice every day. She was always giving to others, and her fun, positive nature was contagious. As a friend she was so supportive and was there for me during some really tough times. I have so many wonderful memories of her and will cherish them forever. My deepest sympathies to all of the Dobson family.

I will never forget the banana smoothies, strapping and constant reminders to rehydrate during all of those high school basketball tournaments Super Sue. And then the weekend drinks and hospitality at your place when the late night sausage rolls came out to help offset the beverages. RIP Super Sue, take care Bryan, Dobbo, Robert and families.
