What memories this stirred up. Seems at least twice a year the Kelley girls would receive boxes of clothes that the grandparents (ma’am and pap chambers) would glean from Susie and her other cousins. They were always received with excitement. I don’t know if your mom knew where her stuff was going and our paths never crossed so I am thanking her now. God bless you all.

I first knew Suzy when she was in high school. Judging by her obituary picture, she maintained her warm smile into her later years. I'm glad. She was a real Bruce, showing kindness, compassion, and good humor to all she encountered. I am sorry she is gone from our world.
