To my extended family, we are all going to miss Aunt Susie, she was a very special and dear person in my life. I am honored to have known her and most of all gain some of her wisdom. It is going to be strange not being able to go by and sit with her and go shopping and do the things we use to do. I pray for strength for myself and each of you during this time of sorrow. I love you guys dearly....

Susie Mae became part of our family about 27 years ago....after my oldest daughter, Elizabeth, was born premature, and after she finally came home from the hospital, Susie Mae was introduced to us, as we were looking for someone to keep Elizabeth at home while Frank & I worked. Susie Mae kept Elizabeth for 2 - 2 1/2 years...she was such a special lady to us and will always hold a special place in all our hearts.

Susie Mae was very special to me and my family. She kept me from the time I came home from the hospital until I was 2 years old. She was a very sweet and caring woman. She will always hold a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. Susie is now a beautiful angel in Heaven looking down on each one of you!
