  • My deepest sympathy to the Egan family. I have such fond memories of meeting Sue at “Little People” skate at Hingham rink with Timmy and my son Joey. We always had so much fun chatting as the boys took their first steps on the ice..Later we spent much time together at the rinks as Liz was very involved in figure skating where I coached, taking lessons from my sister Christine. Sue adored her children and loved being involved with their activities. She was always volunteering at the school events with a big smile and such kind words to all. I know she is now your guardian angel and will be looking out for all of you.

    Much love, Beverly Fernald and family
