Suzie was my neighbor and friend. One summer when my nephews were here on vacation, she generously offered to have them fish from her boat dock. The three boys were quite a handful for both of us. One of them cast their line, accidentally hooking her in the hand. She almost passed out, and I was so upset that they weren't paying attention and listening to our instructions. However, she graciously went home to rest and to work the hook out of her hand. I took the boys home and followed up with her later. She was ok but shaken. I felt terrible that she had tried so hard to help them and me and got hurt. Just one example of how generous and kind she was. One year she was entertaining Hope and Hannah. Bruce and I helped them make crafts and toys for the Jewish holidays. We had a blast and learned a lot. It was a real joy to be with them. She shared her apple cake recipe with me, but when I made it, it never turned out as good as hers. When my mom came to visit one winter, we had a tea party. She loved getting together with everyone and let me borrow one of her tea pots. I'm so glad we have these happy memories. She will be missed.

My heart is broken. Suzie was my second mom. She took me under her wing when I moved to Dallas. Her lake house was my escape during my divorce. I will remember her every time I see a stick of butter, a quart of half & half, Texas Trash, cinnamon candy and anything purple. I loved her dearly.
