Our sincere sympathies go out to Ed, Heather, and the entire Mumper and Porter Families at this very sad time.  Susie was one of the most good-hearted people we know and we will greatly miss her.  Our only consolation in losing her is that she is no longer suffering.  Godspeed my dear friend.
 We will all meet you down the road.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of my B.S.H.S. classmate.  Susie was a kind hearted individual.  She loaned me her white earrings for my school picture, which I never forgot.  My deepest sympathy to Eddie and her family.
Ed, You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.  Susie will always live forever in our hearts and memories.  Sue, you were one of a kind. I will miss you.

 Although we hadn't seen each other for some time, I thought of Susie and Ed often.  So many memories of our times back in high school and our trip to Colorado come streaming back.   My deepest sympathy to Ed, Heather and to all the family.

To Susan's family,
I had Susan in school--for French and cheerleading.  I can't remember her ever frowning--she was always so upbeat and a pleasure to be around.
My deepest sympathy to all of you.  May God comfort you during this difficult time.

Mary Fetrow

Dearest Ed,Heather,and family

 We were saddened to here of Susie's passing. Ed and I have been reminising about the joy and fun that Susie added to anything she was a part of. She brought happiness to every life she touched, and she touched so many of them. We will remember her with smiles! Please know that she is now free of pain, and in a place where she can watch over all of us until we can join her. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

 Susan and Ed Luhn


What a great lady, she will be greatly missed.

Carol & John Chronister
Ed,Heather,and family,

Upon learning of Susan's great love of the outdoors makes me realize how vital it is to take in the beauty of God's creations at every opportunity which I try and do. When I sit atop the hills overlooking the Susquehanna River in York County in quiet, contemplative reflection and prayer I have been and will continue to think of you, and your family asking Him to comfort you  throughout the coming days.

Cousin Lyn and Skip McElhenny
 Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Mumper/Porter family.

Norm & Nancy Malloy
 Our deepest sympathy to Jim, Mary, and the Porter family in the loss of Susan.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dave and Jean White
My deepest sympathy to Eddie, Heather and family.  It saddens me that we didn't keep in touch after school because we really had a lot of good times together.  I've thought  of Susie often.  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Deb (Crites) and Nick Peduzzi
 I didn't know Susan for long, but I loved knowing her for a short time and am extremely sad for your loss.  If I can help in any way please, let me know.

 Joan Magness
Ed, you and your family have my deepest sympathy, words can not convey what you are going through at this time.
