    I have many happy memories of Sue and Ken, some of the nicest neighbors. I still look back and smile at how graciously they always pulled all of us neighborhood kids skiing with their steadily growing boats. Sue very patiently us all how to get up on water skis. It was wonderful knowing them and having them as a part of my life.
