    Our hearts are broken and heavy over the loss of our Susan. Our family
    will miss her, however, she has left us with many fond memories. Sue
    was taken from us too early and it hurts to think we can not have her
    life with us any more.
    She taught us all to be strong and forgiving. I always admired her
    strength to pick herself up, brush herself off and just go forward.
    Susan used this strength through out her illness and she also used it
    when she knew it was time to find peace.
    We love you so much Susan and we will miss always.
    Love, hugs, and kisses.
    Bonnie and Dave
