have a memory or condolence to add?

I've worked with Susan for many years at the Antique Mall. She had such a positive quality about her. Sometimes you meet somebody in your life that is an 'instant like'. You know they are quality after just a few minutes. These people are rare and far between but Susie was one of them.

She always tried to see the good in everyone - when she would get upset with someone, she would immediately follow her comments with 'God Love Her or God Love Him'.

I recently told her I wanted to be just like her when I grow up...With deep sadness and deeper love. Sharon

I am so saddened to hear of Susie's passing. She was a beautiful person inside and out. It has been many years since I talked to her but I have always remembered and cherished the few years that we were St Bernard moms together. She taught me how to make baklava which I still make every Christmas.

My deepest condolences to Mike, Louis, Joseph and Alex.

Dear Mike and Ayoob Family, Suzy was one of the sweetest and kindest friends we have ever known. She was a woman of courage, dignity and grace -- and she never stopped fighting the good fight! Her utmost devotion as wife and mother was unsurpassed and she valued her family above everything. May our Heavenly Father ease your grief and leave only the cherished memories of her loving ways. And may the angels lead her into paradise. Your friends, Larry and Mary and The Ackels Family.

I could count on my fingers the few times I had the pleasure to be in the company of Susan Ayoob, a close relative's best friend. But, as the saying goes, it's not about quantity, it's about quality.
She left this earthly life too soon, especially for those who knew and loved her and that were the closest to her. Definitely lacking quantity of days... I can't express enough sympathy, condolences. I truly can not.
It goes without saying that her quality of life was a blessing. Every time I saw her she was bubbly, fun, full of laughter and love. She was radiant and had the most infectious laugh! I am thankful for the "quality" experiences I had with Susie. God's blessings to her family and friends who are in mourning and may God's perpetual light shine upon her.

Her friendship meant so much to me. She was always so upbeat, and boy, could she cook. We will all miss her dearly at the mall (and her wonderful baklava!) God speed and may she rest peacefully among the angels now 'cause she was one here on earth.
