am so saddened by the death of Susie. She was so filled with the love of her husband, children and grandchildren. She influenced
the lives of other children and to all who came into her life. But most of all she loved her Lord, and she wanted to do his
will. I will miss seeing Susie in church with her children and grandchildren,but know that we will all be reunited one day.
am so sorry for your loss she was a wonderful person praying for your family.
