    Tim, although we did not know Susan, we feel for your loss. She must have been a great person because you chose her for your wife. Bryan still feels you were is best teacher in the 5th grade. We talk about you every now and then. May God be with you at this time.

    chesterton inSusie was my best friend when we were in our early 20’s, I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. It was pretty shocking news to hear and I feel so bad for the family.

    How do you put a lifetime of memories into a few words….Susie was one of a kind a cousin and friend. Her laughter was infectious and she was the life of the party. We could always depend on her to be at a shower, wedding, graduation or just be there if you needed her. Susie, you will be missed so much by all of us who loved you. We will now have another star shining brightly in the sky. I’m sure Audy Pady was waiting for you with open arms and together you will be watching over us. God chose you to leave this earth and enter his heavenly home to become his angel and what an angel you will be. My heart breaks because I will not see you anymore and I know that is selfish on my part but I really mean it. Love you Susie , you will be in my heart forever..
