To the McMillen Family: My sincerest sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in remembering all the smiles that Sue brought to all those who entered the rink. She and Dave bought the Rink from our family and she always greeted me as if I were family- she even loaned me her skates once! May God bring you peace in the coming days.
