I met Suzanne probably ten years ago. I liked her instantly. We became friends and I introduced her to my cousin who is a wonderful guy. The two of them hit it off and the rest is history. He married into a very loving family of Suzanne ‘s. All her children and grandchildren are the best. They all took to Joe fast. Suzanne could bring happy times to any party and was so loved by all her friends and her family. Besides being a great cardiac nurse she also took great care of her own husband Joe when he had open heart surgery. She’s one of a kind. We love you Suzanne and always will you remain in our hearts forever ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏
