John I am so sorry to hear of Susie's passing. She was such a joy, always smiling, with a good word for everyone. I loved walking beside her because she was smaller than me and I felt so tall! She would laugh whenever I mentioned that to her. She will be missed by so many but while her body isn't with us her spirit will be with us for years to come. God bless you and your family during this time. Rest in peace, my little friend.
