I always felt as welcome as if I were a blood relative in Suzanne’s home. She always had a funny story to tell, usually about herself or the kids or grandkids. She loved her family with a deep & committed love. I loved her laugh & her Georgia drawl. I enjoyed visiting with her many times thru the years. She lived her life sharing God’s love with everyone around her. Suzanne will be missed. I am so thankful to have known her. She blessed my life.
