I loved this woman to bits. We ate, laughed shared good and bad together. Took Cora, Jordan and Zack everywhere. Breakfast the Space Center, Nashville shores to many times to count. We always saw her when we came home. I miss her already knowing next time we are there she won't be. She was a great friend and loved the kids so very much. I know I will miss her laugh the most because we did a lot of that. Good bye Susan I love you and will remember you always.

Susan will be greatly missed! She had a lot of impact on many people's lives. Her love for Cora was unlike any granddaughter/grandmother relationship I have ever seen.

Susan and I had many great talks over the years but her eyes would get as big as saucers when she talked about her granddaughter Cora. I loved Susan’s care free spirit. When someone you love like Susan , a super grandma, becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. We will greatly miss her.

What a wonderful picture of your grandma. I know how very special you were to her and her to you. So glad that you and your grandma had the chance to visit me in PA way back when. So thankful that I had a chance to talk to her after Christmas. She was very upbeat about her dialysis and seemed in high spirits. Was shocked when I heard the news from Jennifer. I am in Florida now and hope to come to the memorial service in PA in April. Cora, you have my deepest sympathy I know how close you were to your grandma. May the Lord give you the strength to get through this sad time. Love Vicki

A friend from grade school on through graduation. Always a friend. Her mother Thelma was our scout leader from brownies on. Her father a customer of my dad in the barbershop. I have passed this news on to our class so sorry not to be able to attend. I know your family has had a great loss. We will all miss her laughter
