  1. I dont know why today Sue came into my head and I knew she had passed years ago, she was my Dr and and amazing one she was the one who I was seeing when we found out I had a terminal desiese of scleroderma, and as I lay in bed today after having this illness for many years and it taking a toll on my body I though of Sue, and how blessed I was to have been a patient of hers, I started reading all these posts but one in paticular put tears in my eyes, Miki her daughter, I’m not sure if you will EVER see this but if I could tell you ANYTHING to ease your heart it would be, how MUCH SHE LOVED HER KIDS, I remember one time when I was seeing her at the clinic she knew I was depressed she told me at least we raised our children right so when we get old we know they will be there for us..i know her children were her greatest accomplishments..she loved you very much..

  2. Susan, by this time, you have been Home for several years. I just learned of your death when Tom Esterline (remember him!?) asked if I had ever heard from you. I googled your name, and was so shocked, sorry, and sad when I read your obituary. Remember when we used to try to figure out which of us was older since we shared the same birthday? I remember our time in the dorm at Dayton State, and the troubles we used to try and stay out of! Miss you, Susan, and so wish we hadn’t lost touch.

  3. Susan is, was and will always remain an extraordinary woman. She was very kind, giving and forthright! I feel very fortunate and blessed that she came into my life. I know that she touched everyone in a very Special way. She will ALWAYS be remembered for her ZEST for LIFE and MANY KINDNESSES!!!!! I wish her daughters and family members much peace. May you always remember the goodnesses Susan shared with each of you. Namaste !

    Namaste!

  5. I miss my mom and i cant get over the fact that she is gone. Sometimes i wake up thinking she is inthe other room but she is not. Its really hard for me to understand why she she left me and my sister all alone in this world. She new i needed her but i guess that wasnt enough, i dont know. There is not a day that goes by that i dont think this is a dream. and i pray that is but its not. i i dont want to go on in life becauese she was my everything my support in life , she made me what i am today. im not stong without her,im going to fail at life.
    i was mean to her. why was i? i was a bad daughter. i never ever thanked her enough for what she had done for me. she put me in school took care of me and helpled me on my homework all night at times. i didnt care, i was mean. now i need her with me. i need her help. i want her back with me . that is my only wish.
    i loved my mom i still do i just wish she was with me , i love her so much i just wish she could see that.

    I LOVE YOU MOMMY

  6. I met Susan, Miki, and Katrina in 1998, when Katrina and I went to school together, and became best friends. We lost touch with each other over the years, so today with thoughts of her filling my mind I thought I would try to find her. I typed in Susan Halsey to the search. I was floored when I came across the news. Susan was such an amazing and admirable woman. Many blessings to all friends and family. May angels walk with you daily.
    If you have contact with Katrina or Miki please have her e-mail me at: karena.nicole@yahoo.com

    God Bless

  11. To the family of Sue Halsey. I have known Sue for many years, and she and you all have been constantly in my prayers since I first heard of this. My heartfelt condolences are with you. Sue was such a wonderful person and mother. She will be greatly missed.

  12. Dear Miki,

    I am so sad and confused about everything that has happened, and want you to know that Lindsay and I have you in our heart and that we have been praying for you and your family. We love you very much and want you to know that we are here for you if you ever need anything at all.

  13. I was a friend of Susan’s in high school. How shocked I was to hear of her passing. We had not kept in touch but did “catch up” at reunions. My prayers and thoughts are with her entire family. How sad that we have lost someone with so much to give.

  14. SUE HALSEY WAS NOT MY PRIMARY DOCTOR AT PCHC BUT MANY YEARS AGO SHE TOOK THE TIME TO DO TESTS THAT NO ONE ELSE HAD DONE YET AND WAS ABLE TO DIAGNOSE A CONDITION THAT I HAD NO CLUE I HAD. SHE ALSO TOOK THE TIME TO CALL ME HERSELF AND NOT HAVE A NURSE DO IT FOR HER. SHE WAS A GREAT DOCTOR AND I AM SORRY TO THINK SHE WILL NO LONGER BE AT THE CLINIC. SHE DID A LOT OF GOOD THERE. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO HER FAMILY FOR THEIR LOSS.

  15. To the Family of Ms. Halsey~
    As a patient I VALUED Sue so much. My family and I have been patients at PCHC since about 1991. I value EVERY relationship in my life as well as that of the person whom TAKES THEIR TIME to care for my family and I. Sue was one of those people. She truely took the time to CARE! She was a very personable care provider. Someone who would laugh with you and console you when you needed it and make you feel better when you are not feeling so hot. She was GREAT at what she did! My family and I are feeling this loss and grieving as well. She was a DOTING MOTHER if you had the pleasure of knowing her you KNEW this without question.
    Our prayer for you as a family is come together and celebrate her awesomeness and the person she was!! Also that you will find comfort in knowing how treasured she was and still is as our care provider.
    Loving thoughts and DEEPEST sympathy,
    April Gatlin

  18. Sue was my PCP for many years. She was always kind and cared about me and all I was dealing with physically. She spoke well of her family especially her daughters. I have prayed continued peace for you the family of Sue. It has been difficult for us as her patients, we feel the loss, so many seek answers we can only speak peace to every heart. It’s a good time to pray and rally together as a family. At PCHC every woman was without makeup from the tears they shed. Your mom,daughter, auntie, sister, …she will be missed on this earth, that’s for sure. Remember the good days and the laughter and the hugs, and smiles. day by day your heart will be healed.Seek help, talk to others you are not alone in this grief.
    grateful to have known Sue,
    Rosanna Pacheco
