Devan and I are so saddened to
hear of Suzy's passing. We have just returned from a trip and found out this afternoon. I remember when we moved in on
Somerset, she welcomed us with a platter of delicious baked goodies.
We didn't see each other often,
but I always thought of her and will miss her.
We pray God's blessings for the family and that he will give you
strength and peace in the days
The Lowes, Devan and Hilda

Sitting on the sidelines of the soccer field, watching the GO Hawks play soccer, while talking with Suzy- a pure joy. She had a smile and exuberant personality that inspired me. Spending time with Suzy and family at the Lake House and savoring the food she and Helene prepared, I was blessed with the love of our Heavenly Father from that entire family. They all truly define what family means not only for those they are related to but those they blessed with sharing their time and love. Suzy was the matriarch of that love. She will be missed but as I continue to enjoy her baked French toast, she will always be part of my heart. Haller family, much love and prayers to each of you.

Aren’t really enough words to say how wonderful and kind and sweet and cherished Suzy is to me and mine. She and her family took me in sort to speak when even I didn’t know I needed that and thought had all handled. She did that always with a hug, a smile, and that twinkle in her eye ushering me to some new treat to eat or recipes for me to try that she had cooked up. Thank you Suzy and Bill for many smiles shared. Love her always.

Suzy was one of the first doctor's wives to welcome me to Gadsden nearly 40 years ago. I quickly realized she welcomed all with a genuine warmth and directness and sense of humor. Whether it was at a meeting, in the grocery store, or a chance encounter on the side walk, she always brightened my day.

What an wonderful human being that Suzy truly was.
She lives within us all, and we're so sorry for your loss.
May the Holy Spirit provide peace and comfort to the entire Haller family.
