    Please accept my sincere condolences. I will always remember her smile and outgoing personality. The last time I saw her in person was about 40 years ago at the Persimmon Festival. I recall how proud she was of her first child! She was truly a wonderful person.

    Susan was very, very sweet lady. She & I both worked for 2 different doctors at the same time. I like to think I was as much help to her as she was to me.

    Hillary, Erica, and Brittany, I was so saddened to hear of Susan’s passing. I know her health has been fragile the last few years, and living so far away, I never got to see her very often. Know that she is no longer suffering and is in the arms of our Lord, is reassuring. Just know we have you and your families in our prayers during this sad time. I know she will be missed by many friends and our family. Rest in Peace dear cousin Susan. ❤❤❤
