  1. Suzie was always such a kind and sweet person.
    She will be terribly missed by family and friends. My sincere sympathy to everyone. Bonnie (Etienne) Reed and family

  2. Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it is about unbecoming everything that really isn’t you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

  3. Susie was a great neighbor for the past 25 years who became a good friend. I’m going to miss her terribly. Prayers for comfort for her family and friends.

  4. Thank you for your prayers and friendship with my younger sister, Susie. Thank you for standing by your promise to take care of Bear and Frosty. She knew you loved them and would take good care of them. She thought a lot of you, again thank you from all my family.
