Did you first meet her as Sweet Sue L.?
Or was it Sweet Sue A.?
‘cause when you finally met her
she likely made your day
She had so many great traits
Did Sweet Sue Amedeo
But the brightest one for me
Was her positive glow.
She showed it from a young age
(We knew Sue when she was small)
Good things to say about others
And a friend to short and tall
For those who know the Grinch’s tale
She was Susie Loo Who.
That somewhat naïve, waifish girl
Who was always there for you.
She held up like a trooper
Despite all of cancer’s curse
She showed love to friend and foe
And likely kissed her nurse
Her years have been cut short
We might have wished her here
But she is still among us
Of that we can be clear.
Look left and right, at those she touched
Yep, you can see her there
In that bounce you have in your step
The way you show you care.
You see, we haven’t lost her
God knows she has more to share.
Now it’s our job each new day
To follow Sue’s example, with care.
