Susie called me one morning and said she needed help. She told me where she was and she was not feeling well. I called back to the home and ask them to check on her. A day or so later I visited her and prayed with her. She was responsive and resting. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know her and don't know how she had my cell number, but feel it was a divine appointment. She had a sweet spirit.
