Our theme was FUN.
Dear Sue ...
So difficult to say farewell to you...
When you and Mary Anne would visit us in Roeland Park or Yardley, the dynamics within our family changed dramatically: Anne was no longer isolated, she had her own gang! She loved it! All the fun you girls would dare to have... Laughter morning til night. Pranks and antics and funny things to say. Our whole family loved you visiting!
You were always the cousin who made me wish I had more sisters.
You were the third kid in your family, as I was in mine, and there was just something fun about that, that we both had an older brother and sister, and that our parents seemed to think they were done raising kids by the time they got to us... a comfort zone we shared.
Rest easy, Cousin, you did it! You treated this world to your good nature and your sweet ways.
Sue, I will always hear your voice, the most southside voice of all.
And I will always remember your eye contact, so direct.
You are a pleasure to know and love. I know I will miss you dearly;
I always wanted just to be on your team.
Love, Always!
... Greg

My condolences to the family of Sue Doyle. Words cannot express the sadness one feels when a loved one dies.

I read a sweet saying that was used in an obituary that I'd like to share with you. "The passing of a loved one breaks your heart, and time heals broken hearts. My wish for you is that time passes quickly for you and your loved ones during this time of sorrow!"

Sue and family will be in my thoughts and prayers!

I will never forget sitting at the lake house with Sue and Jim and she got different wigs out for Jason to try on. We always had a great time and I will miss Sue and my conversations and texts with her immensely. Tommy, Rich, Jim...and the rest of the deepest condolences during this extremely difficult time. xo
