Dear Uncle Leo and cousins,
So sad to hear of Aunt Sue’s passing.  May God give all of you strength in this time of sorrow.  As we all know she was quite the caring, funny, thoughtful and loving lady.  Thank you Uncle Leo for helping to create a life much better than when she was born and for the four fabulous sons the two of you raised.  She is now with grandma, grandpa and Teddy and in no more pain.  Peace and prayers for the family.

So sorry to hear this about Susie!!  We were hired together as the original crew at Video Circus in 1990/1991.  I was just 22 and right out of college and needed a job since I did not have a full-time teaching job yet.  Susie was my boss and just a wonderful woman - smart, funny and hardworking.  She kept me in line and out of trouble for years at the Circus!!  We had lots fun back in the day working at Video Circus. Prayers to you Leo.  Rest in peace my friend.
