Although I have only known Susan over the last couple of years, I feel very blessed to have met her. She was a kind and upbeat person that loved her family and looked forward to planned visits and events with them. My condolences to the family and thank you for sharing Susan with me.

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

Where to start......I have so many great stories, which one to post?? I don't know. So, I'll just say Sue was the nicest, big hearted person I know. Sue was the person if you looked up the word "friend" in the dictionary, you would she her face.
Tim, Laura, Missy, and Mike, I love you all, and I'm so sorry. Remember Sue is now in a better place. I will miss her dearly!!!

They say you should always look for a positive in every tragedy. With this we have become so close and have shared many great times together with Jen. My sincere regret is that it was cut so short. I will miss you so very much. I will even cheer for the Canes for you(not when they are playing the Pens though). Until we see each other again, my Love always.
