Doña Susana, ya está en los brazos de Dios gozando de la felicidad prometida por Nuestro Señor, Dios y Salvador y junto a todos nuestros seres queridos. Siempre recordaré lo nerviosa que me ponía cada vez que le cortaba el pelo antes de convertirme en “beautyschool drop-out”. Siempre vivirá en nuestros recuerdos. Siento mucho que ya no esté aquí, ya cumplió con su misión y ahora a gozar de la gloria eterna. 🙏💞
