Suzy and Family, we were sadden to read about your Mother. Steve worked with your Dad at Swans years ago and we had many good times with your folks. Your Mother was so proud of you and her grandsons. We know she will be missed very much and it is double hard to lose both of your parents in such a short time. You have our sincere sympathy .

Dear Suzy and Family, I wish to extend my sincere sympathy in the loss of your dear Mom. What wonderful memories she has left for us. The gala neighbor picnics, which young and old enjoyed so much and then the clever Halloween scary thrills. What laughter and fun we all had!! God Bless you and yours. Love Bette Dodds and Family
