There is no easy way to put this.....

Sue passed away earlier this morning in the Beacon Centre, Taunton

Her sister Rachel was with her as she peacefully slipped into the next world and the loving arms of those members of her family who had gone before her

As you would expect her room has had a procession of visitors, young and not so young over this week and the staff have been magnificent, showing compassion for both Sue and all around her in bucketloads

Now she is free of all the limitations of her condition to be Sue again

The sun ought to get it's act together today as there is one new star up there shining so brightly we will all need our sunglasses

God bless you Sue xxx


  1. I think she will be taking a little bit of all of us with her, as I know a little chink of my heart has just been pulled away. Sue my love, you may not be here in body, but your spirit will live on in all of us. I love you x RIP x

  4. Praying for comfort and peace in the days ahead.

  5. Rest in Peace Sue. Your strength, courage and sense of humour throughout your journey was truly selfless and inspirational.

  6. For Sue:

    You can shed tears that she is gone, Or you can smile because she has lived.

    Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, Or you can be full of the love that you shared.

    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

    You can remember her and only that she is gone, Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

    You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


    This was read out at the Queen Mother's Funeral... It just seemed so fitting for Sue... Rest in Peace. xx

  7. This was not the news I was hoping to hear today...
    Dearest Sue rest in Forever Peace...... May you be free from all pain,
    Heaven just received another Angel in the morning...
    The Sun was shining here over the Pond when I woke up
    Love Alli.... XXX

  8. Sue, we only met twice, but, the lasting impression you made stays with me and reminds me that life may be short and may not always be sweet but you can still be charming, kind and positive. It's impossible to forget your kindly smile.... and that Dalmation outfit!!!

  9. Sue, Heaven's not going to know what's it it now they have you, the most wonderful angel who has enriched so many peoples lives. Thanks for teaching Harry the came of 'punch' yellow car as I always have a bruised arm! Thanks for our fun trips to Croyde and Woolacombe and the memories of Harry and Holly sand boarding and cutting up dead jellyfish. I will really miss the amazing girls nights in with Tracey and Laura and trips to The Plough!! I do hope they serve cider up there!!! Rest in peace, lots of love Ali and Harry xxxxx

  10. sue - for you - I know your spiritualistic side woul dlove this : mary Elizabeth fry wrote
    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft starlight at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

  11. been a while sue since I last saw you, but my memories are very vivid of the times we spend together during your childhood. Thank you Rachael for contacting me, My thoughts and prayers are with you all, until we meet again Sue, rest in peace dear sweet girl.
