I will miss Suzanne greatly, though I only knew her briefly.
She had a wonderful smile, a great heart for others.
Her faith is an inspiration for me in difficult times.
i also greatly honor the way she tried to reach out and visit others even as she was not feeling well herself.
My sympathies and prayers to her family and friends.

We have gotten to know Suzanne the past couple of years and have enjoyed her kindness and friendship very much. She will be sadly missed. She talked all the time about her family and was very proud of you all. Even though we never met everyone, we feel like we know you. Please accept our sincere sympathy. We are unable to make any of the services, but will be there in spirit. Ann and Mark
