    Ma Sue thank you for teaching me how to be a good wife and mother, for raising Donny to be a good man and husband and for being wonderful Hanai grandmother to Mikey and Bree. You embodied the true purpose of Wife, Mother , Sister, Friend and Grandmother all of which is simply Love freely given and deeply felt. You were our Matriarch and we are all lost and struggling without you, but what you have taught us all family and friend is that we all have the strength and love and hope and fortitude to carry on because You taught us that and for those gifts I am forever grateful. Until we meet again Safe Journey Ma Sue
