Aunt Susan.... I miss you so much already!! Our conversations that we had regarding my health meant so much to me. You were truly a cheerleader for me. Please tell Gary (dad) and Nana I said hello. And please make sure to find my mom and give here a big hug. I love you to the moon and back!! Your Neice, Ann

Susan became my sister in 1977 when she married my brother and remained very close family to the end. Even though their marriage ended, our relationship remained and grew even stronger and we would often say "sisters are forever!" I am so thankful I was able to be with Susan during this past Thanksgiving and her birthday because we have some memories which will carry me through til we meet again! One of our last evenings together we got together with our other sister Sally and her husband Eddy for a game of Uno. I can still hear Susan laughing as we played that crazy game with it's strange little homemade cards that kept changing directions. Susan was so fun loving and caring!!! She loved people!!! She often spoke of her beautiful grandchildren and how blessed she was to have them!!! I will miss her more than I can say, as many people will!!! I take comfort in knowing we will meet again on the other side!!

May God bless you all with His peace in the loss of Susan, I worked with her at Millard Henry Clinic. She was a blessing to all with her great smile and her sweet laugh.

I did not know Susan personally but I know her daughter Beckie. That's why I know Susan had to be an amazing woman.... because she raised an amazing daughter. Parting for God's peace and comfort for the family.

I am saddened to see you have passed on. I didn't know you were sick. You were a bright spot I looked forward to seeing in my outages. I trusted you with caring for my furbaby. They aren't many who love animals the way you did. Ziva will miss you greatly. I'm sorry for all that new you. We have lost a friend that can't be replaced. And to her family, please accept my condolences. Diana and Ziva

Oh my friend, the laughter we shared, visits on the rock patio, the many meals we cooked for each other, the love for our furbabies, ALL will be truly missed. I will always have these treasured memories. Will miss your uncontrollable laughter when we would be driving and I would talk to other drivers, many projects we worked on, planting flowers. Your daily presence in our lives gave us our own memory book of you and I thank you for that.. Love to you from me and my furbabies..
