The staff and foster network at Heartland Humane Society mourns the loss of Sue. She volunteered to help rescue many dogs and a few cats during her many years of volunteering at HHS. We will miss her stopping by the shelter to chat and all the small gifts and encouragement she provided staff. We extend our sympathy to everyone who was lucky enough to have spent an afternoon, evening, meal, or trip with Sue.
My sympathy to the family and friends of Sue Miles. I knew Sue when she worked at the Human Services Center as well as a member of the Murder by the Book mystery book group. She provided many great programs for our book club. One year, she made counted cross stitch Christmas ornaments for every one in the group. She was a good friend to all.
I too have good memories from our days together in Murder By the Book. Rest in peace, Sue, and comfort for all who mourn her too-early loss.
Our sympathy goes out to the family of Sue. We met her way back when....and saw her a few times over the past years. She was always smiling, soft spoken and always a kind heart.
Joe and Kelly Sparks
My sympathy to all.
