Dear family and friends of Susan,
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. During this difficult time may you find comfort from each other and the memories you shared. I hope you also can look to God for help during the days ahead. We are assured these comforting words in 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17 "May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort our hearts and make you firm." May you find this true for you all.

We can't believe Susie is gone! She was always a ray of sunshine and willing to help anyone. She loved her family and was such a hard worker. After doing so much here on earth she is surely to be rewarded in heaven. Our thoughts, prayers and hugs go out to Chet, Jared and Craig and their families.

My condolences to Susan's family. Susan was always bright and cheerful. Susan was the type of person who always made me feel good even with short interactions, it is that type of joy that we need to continue. She always looked out for my flower orders year after year, many times delivering them on her way home.
