Susan was one of the nicest people I know. Her will to live and be kind was immeasurable. She was always ready to go wherever I wanted. She was never afraid to try something new. She loved the sun and the pool. She was always there when no one else was. We spent a lot of time together when I was off work. Until we see each other again, I love you bestie!
