Aunt Sally called me last week to tell me the sad news of Susan's passing. What I remember most about Susan was her infecious smile and her laugh, which reminded me of her mother, Aunt Elva. In my personal & professional dealings with Susan, she exhibited such a positive attitude about all things. Our condolences go out to you and the family. Missy & I will keep her in our prayers.

Aunt Susan and Uncle Ajae searched high and low for the perfect home for us. It was grueling, yet fun. They made us laugh the whole way through. To top it all off they gave us the best house warming gift. A gigantic blow up Santa! Not only did they deliver, but they also put it up in the yard for us. We had many laughs that day and it is a memory we will cherish forever.

Susan lit up every room she entered with her infectious smile, sincere kindness, and positive attitude. She was truly a sweet and generous person, who was loved by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Her strength, in spite of her illness, was an inspiration to us all. She left a lasting impact on everyone who was fortunate enough to meet her; and there is no doubt her memory will never fade.

May God bless and comfort you Ajae, and all of Susan's family and friends, who share in the sadness and loss of this incredible lady.
